Just saw the Breeze-M Deb (Tank) #36103 (2009-065-C) and that has to be the
fastest satellite I’ve ever seen.

Current Argument of Perigee puts its closest point very close to my 37
Latitude.  Didn’t get a timing due to clouds,

but was very close to predictions on Heavens-Above and latest SatTrack file.


Orbit currently 334km x 15,551km.  Mag at 339 km straight overhead was +1.2.
Definitely worth a look!
