    I timed 07006A with a stopwatch, and estimated 07006C's time relative 07006A,
    based on its leading by about 0.15 deg, with angular velocity of 0.43 deg/s.
    
    I saw 06057A / 29651 briefly at 06:02 UTC, at low elevation, but could not see
    suitable reference stars.
    
    I looked for 07631A / 91117 in Mike McCants' estimated orbit below, but did not
    see it. I observed within several minutes of 06:10 UTC, and panned several
    degrees cross-track. Range was about 10,000 km; phase angle near 90 deg. The sky
    was clear, and I could see to mag 10.
