    I just watched 39086 pass just east of the M45 in my 8" scope.
    32mm EP giving 1.5 FOV @ 38x. Passed right through the centre of fov.
    Steady in brightness and brighter than pair of mag 6.8 stars in fov.
    Rough time using accurate watch, was +/- 2 seconds. Yellow colour noticed.
    I did not see any other sats cross same fov for +/- 2 minutes.
