Once again I observed four objects from this launch.

I was looking about seven minutes early and almost
four minutes after the last predicted object.

Using day of year 072 elsets, MMS 1 was about 124
seconds early, MMS 2 about 48 seconds early, MMS 3
79 seconds early and MMS 4 75 seconds early.

This assumes that I saw all four MMS objects and not
the Centaur as one of the objects.

I seemed to note a fluctuation in brightness but am not
sure if that was real or an artifact of my optics.

Magnitudes were in the 9.5 - 10.5 range.

Observations were between 3:04:56 and 3:09:50 UT
on 16 March 2015 using an 8 inch Celestron.
