    I guess I am seeing things.
    
    I have captured envisat'd rocket on video. 
    It passed by 69 Her ( 17 h 18 min R.A +37 deg 17 min Dec )
    
    On video, envisat's rocket was bright. Yet on at least two passes with my eye, I sure I saw the
    rocket as faint. The response to light is different for the camera, then my eye. 
    
    So I must have been seeing things. 
    
    Here's the video in MPEG 2 format, and is 12 MB in size.
