    Under less than ideal viewing conditions i looked for the objects of the
    recent launch with my 10x50s but no luck until what i believe was Object K
    #28375 04025K became visible at 1x, mag approx 3 and at 06:29:14 +/- 3sec 1
    July UTC it passed right by Arcturus. It remained visible at 1x for about 1
    min before fading. Then a couple of minutes later i saw an object flare
    equal in brightness to Arcturus approx 20 deg from that star and at 06:35:43
    it passed just below Phecda in Ursa Major and i ID'd this as Object B #28367
    04025B. No signs of any tumbling and much brighter than the object i saw the
    previous night. None of the other objects were seen.
