    Hi Alexander, 
    
    I just followed Tiangong-1 for 2 minutes using binoculars in a less than transparent sky, from 17h11.5 m to 17h13.4m UT.
    It passed as expected (culminating at 26°south, at 17h12.25). Its apparent brightness was about constant at mag 5 for most of the pass , slowly increasing and reaching mag 4 near the end of the observed pass. Predicted magnitude was 1.5 according to Heavens-Above.
