    USA 116 and USA 129 both flared brightly (time for USA 116 not registered)
    Two negative mag. flashes from from Iridium 85, regrettably I forgot to
    check
    the following (W) pass - observations are welcomed!
    At end of USA 116 pass, I noticed a bright flasher (despite low N el)
    , five cycles * 4.65 s., probably UME 1
    
    UseSat: I save all or most observations sent privately or to SeeSat-L, but
    analyze only in case of suspected maneouvre, collision, or abnormal drag.
    With Chris Peat's coming archive site, I won't need them on SeeSat-L, but
    ANY suspicion or deviation above 1 minute, or expected accuracy, should be
    flagged on SeeSat-L
