    From two different locations Mike and I both saw the 
    Foton M-3 Rk (07-40B, 32059), and it was very bright.
    It was at an orbital height of 155 miles (248 km),
    so it won't be up there for very long.  I estimated 
    magnitude zero, and Mike thought it was +0.5; this 
    was at a range of about 220 miles (352 km).  I was
    just watching it from outside my apartment with no
    binoculars and could not see any variation.
