    Observed the Minotaur upper stage (#26415, 000042B) at 0523 UT
    on 20 July 2000. Limited viewing duration prevented assessment
    of tumbling status. The payload was not seen 15 seconds later.
    At 0528 UT the Echostar 6 Centaur rkt (#26403, 00038B) was 
    observed at a range of 9100 km with a magnitude of about 7.5
    yielding a standard magnitude of 3.2.  No obvious brightness
    fluctuations were noted.
