I photographed Iridium and Tandem-X and observed with the naked eye the two
The Iridium had forecast -8, but has remained in -4
As for Tandem-X, from photography I leave the following information:
Photographed path is about between HR6287 and 29 Herculis. The exposure time
of the photograph was 16 seconds. Magnitude +2.6 (+/- 0.2) Mirror (68.7º,
66,4º), it increases the magnitude +1.0 (+/- 0.2) Mirror (69.6º, 85.4º), and
decreases magnitude +1.6 (+ / -0.2) mirror (69.2º, 92.2º).
Regarding the NOSS I can not tell you exactly the data, but with some
approximation. Possibly still with the Breeze-M Deb (Tank) (39362) view
with a magnitude between +3 and +4, when he passed the two NOSS. With the cold
morning I thought they were two stars, but noticing that Jupiter and
increased brightness up to magnitude +1 and look to Júpiter,  I knew there
were two satellites but before it was too late to take a picture because
the brightness had dropped considerably. About magnitude +1.2 (+/- 0.2) with
mirrors (40.8º, 316.4º) for NOSS 3-6 (A) (38773) , and magnitude +1.2
(+/-0.2) with mirrors (40.6º, 316.8º) for NOSS 3-6 (A) (38758).
I hope I can help something.

Almería (Spain), 36.8389º, -2.4498º.
