According to the predictions, made with TLE's from day 293, the four
Globalstar satellites and the Soyuz rocket passed in this order:
D-C-F-B-A. Looking at the times they passed the line between Vega (Alpha
Lyra) to Eta Lyra at RA=18:40 d=+38, I missed the D object. I watched this 
area from 5 minutes before till 3 minutes after the sats passed.
All sats were S, mag 5.
The time in between the passes: -34.79 0 41.52 3.66 seconds.
The zero is the time listed for the F-object.

PS.
I saw Jari's report this morning. Is the F object already away? De-orbit
burn?
And did I see objects D-C-A-B?

Greetings and clear, dark skies
