    Rotation period of Intelsat 512 (16101) continues to accelerate
    about .03 per night; this was from before phase shift:

    This obs was from outside my apartment, very light polluted,
    plus partly cloudy, which interfered a little.
    
    Horizons system didn't have MER-B/Opportunity when I checked

    There's a pretty nice description of an accidental telescopic
    observation of a probable NOSS 2-2 pass at this (reading on a 
    cloudy night) URL:

    There's a 10-minute discrepancy, but otherwise it seems like a
    pretty good match.
