    IGS 1B was steady for a short time at 3.5mag last night ( 2301 BST ) and I'm 
    pretty sure that it was preceeded by 1A a couple of minutes earlier.However 
    although 1A was forecast a similar magnitude , it seemed much fainter and 
    proved hard to follow naked eye.
    
    Despite recent reports about 1B flaring , it didnt perform for me 
    unfortunately ......but it was briefly caught on camera at a range of 516 
    km.
