I am glad Björn and Russell observed this decaying satellite.

For me the observing conditions were better than yesterday.
Same off-position as yesterday (255 meters north of the real site 4160)

Satellite was 37 seconds early and not as brilliant as the days before
(brightest mag. +2)

27698 03 009A 4160 G 20140716222600080 27 15 0445161+730323 99 R+020 05

Now I am hoping the weather and the orbital plane of IGS 1A are cooperating
to morrow night so that I can witness the last possible visible transit
from my location.
