    During two observation sessions I checked mentioned satellite.
    At first I thought I saw a flare.
    Last night I saw this object unintentionally and followed it.
    The I noticed several maxima.
    I checked Russell Eberst's observations of March and April and did not
    find any report of this object.
    In my separately sent PPAS/PNAS reports you can see I saw this
    satellite at about the same time as
    - 06002A 28931 ALOS (Daichi) still steady.
    - 05017A 28649 Cartosat 1 which showed a just naked eye flare
    otherwise I should not have seen it.
