    Good evening,
    My girlfriend Lucille and I just observed the NOSS 3-4 rocket recovered
    using Ted's latest elset. I used my 20x80 for the position measurement and
    Lucille had the job of following it to watch for its optical behavior. Well
    it had the same slow variation in magnitude as the last two observations.
    When Lucille spotted it at first, it was near mag 3 then it started to fade.
    It became almost invisible to her 8x40 binoculars. The general trajectory
    matched the predicted one.
    I took my point soon after the maximum magnitude :
    31702 07 027B   1747 G 20070726054724850 37 25 0005897+163697 58 B+030 07
    I just hope someone else can see this rocket...
