    Last year in Aug, I had a pass of envisat and it's rocket, when I could see them seperated by
    around 10 degrees. They where both easy to see. This year I have no problem seeing envisat, but to
    me it's rocket seems way fainter. I can still spot it, but it not as bright to me as last year.
    
    So I am losing my mind. 
    
    I have a pass tonight, and I am going to record it on video.
    
    Maybe I am seeing things.
