    Brad asked if I had magnitude estimates for Ofek 7 (31601, 
    2007-025A -- Thank you, Leo!) and the Shavit launch vehicle 
    (31602, 2007-025B).  I was using the 12x60 at the time, and
    I'm less confident of magnitude estimates with those.  They
    were comparable to Ofek 5 and its Shavit, although it did
    seem like Ofek 7 might have been a bit brighter - but maybe
    it was just due to the fullness of the phase angle. 
    In my quicksat.mag file I have intrinsic magnitudes of 5.0
    and 4.0 for Ofek 5 and its rocket, respectively.
    FWIW, Spacecom (or whatever they're called) spells it "Ofeq".
