    Sunday morning I made a special effort to try to get probably my 
    last look at the soon to re-enter Feng Yun 2C Rk (28452), which
    was still tumbling nicely:
    
    04- 42 B 05-10-16 11:46:33   EC  122.6 0.5  54  2.27  +2.0->i
    
    While I was watching it, I happened to notice a very bright (-2) 
    northbound object far to my right (west).  I presumed it was an
    Iridium flare and didn't get more than a general idea of where it 
    was.  It was not an Iridium flare but seems possibly to have been 
    Landsat 4 (13367, 82-072A).
    
    Also, here's a PPAS report from my first sighting of the ShiJian 7 
    Long March Rk (28738):
    
    05- 24 B 05-10-16 11:56:27   EC   94.5 2.0   3 32     +2.0->i
