    Tomorrow, USA 129 will be 2h 45m ahead of USA 161 (on the daylight side),
    which is the usual indication of orbit raise. But neither has a perigee
    near the equator (340 and 220) which is a contributing factor.
    
    It was raining when we left 5919, but there were some patches of clear
    sky before the 20:19 pass (NNW) of USA 129. I thought I saw a (flaring)
    satellite at 20:19:55.3 UTC near 14h27m +44.1, but because of clouds
    moving quickly in the opposite direction, I could have mistaken lambda
    Bootis for a satellite.
    
    It agrees within a second from Mike's elset
