Clouds disappeared just in time. Captured USA 186 while it was passing Algol.

It was 4.4 seconds early and 0.14 deg cross-track relative to 5-day old elset 
16060.78016159

I also captured the UNHA-3 rb 2016-009B again, during a good high pass (67 deg 
elevation). During the brightness peaks it was visible by the naked eye at about 
mag +3.5. The flash period is slowly increasing, by about 0.01 s a day. More on 
that later.
