with magnitudes     4     2     4     4      4    and inv in between
For the PPAS enty I used the 3 last timings with 19.38 and 119.37
combined
to one; asuming that another short flash belongs in front of the first
two.
96- 10 A 98-01-26 04:18:09   LB   82.7 0.2  10  8.27  FF, mag 5->inv
Difficult to spot at first, but became clearly visible near zenith

TiPS was right on time and track. It showed two flashes. The first
started
with a small flash at the top and then seems to 'run' along the tether
to
the bottom and ended with a bigger flash from the lower satellite.

This bright satellite was really orange, like Aldebaran - Alfa Taurus.
