    Thanks.
    
    Also, apologies for not giving location - Knoxville ( 35.9676N, 84.0251W)
    
    Also observed Cosmos 2360 and Lacrosse 3.  Lacrosse 3 was "active", 
    giving a flare of increased brightness of about .5 magnitude for about 
    20 seconds at 21:12 eastern time as it neared closest approach and then 
    as it went into orbital sunset at 21:15:00 it gave a quick "wink" before 
    going completely dark.
