    Awhile ago, I had look at a image of the sat, before it was to get launched. I noticed a nice surface on it. So I wanted to keep my eye on it for flaring.
    The other night, I noticed it was somewhat brighter, then when last observed.
    Tonight, I aimed at WGS 5 and noticed right away, it was much brighter then the other day.
    It so far, looks to be 8th mag are brighter.
    Using the ccd camera, to obtain still images of it.
