    Excellent dawn pass picked up around 1645 UTC with culmination at 1647 UTC.,
    Faded rapidly after culmination as it headed toward an orbital sunrise.
    
    Predicted magnitude was -3.4 it could well have reached this as no other 
    objects were visible apart from the moon.
    
    Not much sign of orange coloration this time, but could be clearly seen as 
    two conjoined objects, particularly through binoculars.
    
    Looking forward to evening passes soon, much easier on sleep!  However cloud 
    is also likely to build up.
