The bright EORSAT 1993-44A #22709 now has about a week's orbital life left.
It is just becoming visible after midnight for me, and will have passes
before and around midnight by the end of the week, when I expect it to
decay.
In spite of our bright summer's nights, I should be able to see one pass
per night until decay, and it should be even more convenient on
continental European, and US, latitudes.

Here is Friday's last elset, before the format change on OIG:

#22808 still has its engine running, so it should stay up for at least
five more weeks. It has evening visibility for a few more days.

Here are the latest elsets on Friday, with checksums added :
