    Ed,
    
    Concerning the GRACES: I have the impression that these objects have a
    brightening to
    mag +2 when they are between the sun and the observer and have about the
    same azimuth
    as the sun.
    
    I saw this once last year and it was confirmed this evening. It was for the
    objects!
    
    Regards..Bram Dorreman,
    COSPAR 4160 (Achel 1):
    51 16' 45.5" N (51.2793 N),
    5 28' 36.6" E (5.4768 E)
