Hi Björn,

I was rather surprised by your remark about #29507 from a very short survey.

From extensive observations since 2014, the russian site "
mmt9.ru/satellites/"  catalogued this object as "Non Variable".

Over the years, I noticed that scintillation may often cause dotted tracks
on photos concerning star trails or non variable satellites.

Regards

Alain Figer
