    Found #20625 SL-16 fading from mag +1 while descending in the SE, USA 129 
    flaring to -2 high in ESE, ISS and Shuttle as bright "unknowns".
    Other sats ID-ed after crossing the telescope FOV while waiting for fainter 
    satellites.
    
    I observed USA 3 about 100s early on the epoch 08282 elset
    Probably 13172 KH 9-17 was more on time, but I had accidentally bumped the 
    stop button on my stopwatch.
    Did not see KH 9-16
