Hi, today, this morning I was able to see a very fast satellite crossing
the beautiful constellation Scorpius. After checking in HeavenSat I have
been able to determine that it is about CZ-3B R/B (38253) that passed with
magnitude 0. It was towards 05:58 UTC. The photo was very moving, horrible,
but the fact of crossing Omega Ophiuchi made things much easier.
Later I saw Iridium 12 a magnitude -4, without photo, but easy to determine
with CalSky, and a photo of the anti-flare of Tandem-X and TerraSar-X,
being visible both to the naked eye, shining a little more the satellite
located at south.
