Hi all,

I might likely have seen an object of this launch, but on a track clearly more 
to the south, some 15-20 degrees more south, compared to the predicted elsets of 
Mike Waterman and Jon Mikkel.

I saw a bright mag +1 to 0 object passing just a few degrees west ("to the 
right") of alpha Aquila around 00:24:00 UT that I cannot identify with a known 
object. I did not get enough time to get it on photograph alas: I first picked 
it up at low altitude when it was already descending towards the roof, as I was 
initially looking more eastwards.
