As this satellite did not know I searched and last February launched. I was
looking almost to the opposite side of the sky between 06:18 and 06:20
(05:18 and 05:19 UTC) when the turn surprised me a little close to the star
Spica. Had the camera processing, but fortunately, once the flare continued
magnitude +2, which allowed me to photograph him at least to see what
direction it came from. By consulting HeavenSat seems quite likely to
undertake the flare nothing out of the shadow, and then with certain
reservations, the mirrors would be among (26.5º, 33.5º) and (26.9º, 37.9º).
Anyway, it is almost certain that in the second position shine at least
magnitude +2.
Apart from this, it has been by far the brightest, I had other interesting
satellites. Depending on what you see below, just I write something from

36.8389º, -2.4499 Almería (Spain)
