    After 2 months of inactivity due to the combination of bad weather and a 
    personal loss, I finally managed to get myself to do some observations again 
    last night. It was quite clear and warm, and in 3 hours time I obtained a nice 
    batch of objects and observed and photographed a nice -2 Iridium flare.
    
    One of last night's images shows the Japanese radar reco IGS 4A (07-005A) 
    together with the American radar reco Lacrosse 3 (97-064A) in the same image. It 
    can be seen (together with the Iridium image) here:
