On the morning of June 8 at 00:08 UT seen LIGHTSAIL-A. Noticing his
binoculars in Sagittarius after the release of the shadows , brightness
was at about 4m. Near the beta Capricorn , he went out , binoculars ceased
to be visible. Besides it interferes more and bright moon . But in
Aquarius sailboat he reappeared and began to gradually increase the
brightness to about 2m, although sharp outbreaks were not. Its color is
definitely white, slow speed flight . Then he disappeared behind the roof
of the house and the more I did not see him . The height of its flight I
was 30  above the southeastern horizon. This morning, June 8 at 2352 UT
again seen LIGHTSAIL-A. I noticed him in binoculars between Sagittarius
and Capricorn after the release of the shadows , brightness was at about
3m. In Capricorn , he went out , binoculars ceased to be completely
visible. In Aquarius sailboat scored again brightness to about 2m, then
faded . Sudden outbreaks , this time too, was not . The height of its
flight I was 31  above the southeastern horizon. I came to the conclusion
that a sailboat in space rotates every second , since such fluctuations in
its brightness.
