    At around 4:11 UTC ( May 19 ) I was able to see a Block DM upper stage.
    
    This Block DM upper stage is from a Zenit-3SL rocket, used to place Galaxy 18 geo sat into orbit.
    
    It was around 11th magnitude at the time, but still I could see it.
    
    It was over 37000 km away at the time.
    
    Area of sky 
    
    15 h 59 m R.A
    - 7 deg 04 min Dec
    
    Now to observe one, closer in distance.
