    Just came in from trying to observe Cosmos-1.
    I had a nice pass from 21:23 to 21:26 UT, but didn't see it.
    Sky was still very bright and also some cirrus.
    I used my 16x50 bino's. 
    Near my second point I could just see a mag 6 star;
    so probably Cosmos-1 was fainter than that.
    
    More luck I hope when the sails are open.
    
    Greetings and clear, dark skies
