    I have been busy at work lately so I have had little chance to observe
    satellites. Of course, the weather here has been clear.....
    
    Just one point on a low pass of 00-047A:
    
    26473 00 047A   2751 F 20040522223137680 17 25 1102271+033769 38 S+042 05
    
    Earlier in the evening (21:04 UTC) I observed USA 129 which made a fine pass
    at the zenith in deep twilight.  I couldn't get a fix on it as the
    background was too bright, but I picked it up near epsilon Ursae Majoris
    where it flared to mag 0 for a few seconds.  This was my first Keyhole sat
    observation.
    
    Best wishes
