The visibility for USA 186 is steadily improving, so for this evening
I mounted the Watec 902H2 and its NexStar mount on the other side of
the house to access the Northern skies. Conditions were excellent.

Setup: Watec 902H2 video, 50mm F/1.8, NTP, Nexstar SLT mount
IOD format: http://www.satobs.org/position/IODformat.html
COSPAR 4171: 52.8344N, 6.3785E, 10m (WGS84)
------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTES:
------
1) First time seeing USA 186 [28888/05042A] from the Northern
   hemisphere since Greg's visibility on the Southern hemisphere
   ended. It was running only 3s late on 9 day old elements,
   indicating it has not yet manouvred to a sun synchronous orbit.
2) SAR Lupe 3 [32283/07053A] and SAR Lupe 5 [33244/08036A] were both
   seen, having 9 day and 115 day old elements, respectively.
3) The two Essaim objects [99091/14547A] and [99221/14544A] were both
   seen flaring irregularly, but running within a few seconds and a
   few arcminutes from my earlier predictions.

   Cees
