Hi!

Today I tried to observe KMS-4 after it exit from shadows (17h05m UT) in binocular (50 mm aperture), but I didn't see anything in the estimated time.
Minsk, Belarus, COSPAR 1753.

If we compare the KMS-3-2 with an identical (according to the photo) KMS-4, it should a standard magnitude 8.6m +/- 0.5m (according to MMT data: http://astroguard.ru/satellites/4470) or 7.5 according to the MacCant. Very faint object...


Vitaly.
