    Using the elsets below from OIG I was able to see Cosmos 2372 Rocket and the
    satellite just before they entered eclipse southbound in the evening around
    19:22 and 19:25 UT respectively.  They were at only 7 degrees elevation in
    azimuth 020 degrees.  Even so the satellite was approx mag +3.5 steady, and
    the rocket flashing strongly to +2.5 with a period of 0.4 secs.  They are
    well worth looking out for in the coming evenings as eclipse entry moves
    south!
