    From the UK the 76-38 NOSSs are now visible before dawn, quite bright and
    fast as
    their local height is now below 500km!  (This will continue to fall as their
    eccentricity increases due to the pear-shape of the Earth, and perigee moves
    away from the ascending node).
    
    I saw three of them this morning July 25/26 - A was 1.2 mins late, and C and
    J 0.9 mins late on these home-brewed elements.
    
    Observations to follow later.
    
    David.
