    Hi everybody!
    I have just observed USA 193 from Cadiz (Spain - N36.5340, W6.2990). The
    satellite reached +1 magnitude. It passed near Castor (Gemini
    constellation) at approximately 19:00:30 GMT. I was able to take a photo
    with my Sony DSC H-5 digital camera. It is not a good photo due to wind
    gusts of 90 km/h (around 55 knots per hour). You can see the photo here:
