    Both of these objects seen 1x on an overhead pass in a clear but moonlit sky
    with just a slight haze, the rocket pass commencing 1829 on 8 June UTC  and
    the satellite 1830Z- unfortunately was not in a position to do exact
    Around mag 1 at culmination, brighter than predicted by Calsky.
    Rocket is on the way to decay around Thursday, a nice fast mover.
    Apologies for delay in reporting and its sketchiness,  been busy.
    We have early morning passes of these again tomorrow our time (although not
    as  high an elevation as the reported ones) and skies look good at this
    New Zealand
    UTC plus 12
