    AMC 21 ( 33275 ) at 8:23 utc, was easy to see.
    
    It appeared to be mag 9 are brighter. Will have to check on it again.
    
    I am not suprised it's easy to see, as I had look at images of it, and noticed it had something nice on it, antenna's who surface can reflect a decent amount of sunlight off them.
    
    Image of it, as it was getting for it's trip into space.
