Seen two days ago, today I had the best possible pass, then I'll lose it to
the north.
Very bright, apparently varying between magnitude 0 and -1, two or three
times in each pass. I leave you link to Astrometry where you can see until
before arriving at Alioth in the Great Bear for 8 seconds of exposure (in
that case, it starts with magnitude -1 and ends with magnitude 0); From the
moment it finishes its tracing in the photo, it increases again of
magnitude until reaching magnitude -2 more or less half way between Kochab
and Alioth. The photo also came out a little shaken, but at least
acceptable to see the object.
