    Nice clear evening. 96-072A and 09-061B (the Chinese CZ-2C r/b) rose up from 
    behind the roof together, a few degrees apart and moving parallel. 96-072A next 
    slowly flared to mag. +0.5 at about 19:35:05 UTC.
    
    UNID:
    
    The first image showing 96-072A and 09-061B also shows a faint trail in the 
    upper left corner, that I can't identify with any known object. It is clearly 
    LEO from the trail length, but unfortunately runs out of the FOV so I have only 
    one point to offer. It is not visible in other images (because it had moved out 
    of the FOV).
