Observations obtained in deep twilight (sun at -9 degrees elevation). OTV 5 was
easily visible to the naked eye at mag +1, even though the sky was still bright.

Unfortunately the sky is cluding over now, so no opportunity to capture the
second pass tonight.

These video captures were done with an older EZcap of less quality than the one
that died on me two weeks ago.

I get this orbit from the observations of the past two days:
