    Evening of June 25 through low-power bino, I tried to look IGS 1A. I
    searched for 30 minutes after the estimated time 19:44 UTC of
    Heavens-Above, in accordance with the latest TLE set from J12117.94 from
    the Epoch of on 26 April. I was looking at the output of the satellite
    from the Earth's shadow, viewing area of ​​the constellation
    Ophiuchus, Scorpion and Libra. I finished the search at 20:15 UTC. During
    this period there were several passages of satellites, but all of them
    have been identified for some help programs Heavensat. IGS 1A has not been
    found. A few days ago I was looking for IGS 1A for 20 minutes before the
    estimated time and also it was not visible. Maybe IGS 1A is a much earlier
    or later than 30 minutes with respect to the estimated time of the latest
    TLE set from J12117.94. In the coming days I will try again to search for
    the IGS 1A + - 1 hour from current time of the latest TLE set from
    J12117.94. Has anyone tried to look IGS 1A?
