    Hi all,
    Indeed, the brightness behaviour of Lacrosse 5 is odd lately. I failed to see it 
    both visually and with the camera, nothwithstanding a clear sky and a predicted 
    brightness of +2.1, at the 20:21 UTC near-zenith pass here just 10 minutes ago.
    I did see and capture the Lacrosse 5 Rk an hour earlier. At around +2 it was 
    easily visible both on the camera image and with the naked eye (position 
    measurement report will follow later this evening).
