Yesterday (3-4 May) between 23:02 and 00:06 UT I did a photographic plane scan 
for USA 224. While USA 224 was not recovered, I catched a few other objects 
inclusing ESA's SWARM A & C duo (13-007 B & C).

An image can be seen here:

SWARM C flared, in a somewhat odd way. After what seems a flat bright plateau, 
the brightness suddenly drops. There is not notable decsending brach, it goes 
"floop" from bright to faint.
