    http://mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/satcom_transits/skychart.jpg  is a sky 
    chart image ( based on the   www.Calsky.com    star chart ) showing
    L5 moving across the sky and its variation in magnitude as imaged (May 29 
    2007.....71.5 degree pass )
    
    The satellite was steady around mag 2.5 until approx 22.38.28 gmt when it 
    "disappeared"....although still just visible to the camera. It then flared 
    brightly 20 seconds later , before fading.
