    Observed all four objects from launch 2000 033.  Observed 
    the Cosmos rocket (#26386) first in the viewfinder at
    10:03 UT (4 July).  Then used the main telescope for the
    remaining observations.
    
    SNAP 1 (#26386) was first at 10:12 UT.  Magnitude about 7.
    
    Nadezhda 6 (#26384) was next at magnitude 6.
    
    Last was Tzinghua 1 (#26385) at 10:14:45 UT at magnitude 8.
    
    SNAP 1 supposedly is only about 5 kg so I was pleased to be
    able to see it easily, although it might be difficult in my
    7x50 binoculars.
    
    I tried for a second time to see the TDRS-H Centaur but missed
    it.
