Very clear morning sky. I have a bad cold, but nevertheless decided to try to 
catch NROL-45. Not feeling too well and needing sleep I skipped the first pass 
and concentrated at the second, 05:21 UT pass, which was a pass high in the sky.

Because these objects are usually not too bright shortly after launch, I used 
the 85mm lens. Two images captured it, as an indeed not too bright object. I 
could not see it with the naked eye (other, operational FIA's I usually do see 
with the naked eye).

The first two points might be less accurate, as I might have suffered from a 
lazy thumb for that image. The other two should be okay.
