    Have troubble with other objects fooling me.
    on Nov 14 it was a cosmos rocket with nearly same path,
    while my computer wasn't working on nov 15.
    By the evening of nov 16 the faulty power supply
    of my computer had been replaced. however stss demo2 (09 52 B)
    fooled me. Tonight a fair bit of low fluffy cumulus around but
    finally made my first observation of the season on USA 129.
    this satellite slowly flared to mag 1.5 after reported position.
    I have checked using findsat that no other objects could
    fool me tonite. USA 129 is 15 seconds early on predictions.
