Also seen on the second pass (21:52) on its 3rd orbit, very favourable zenith
pass. It reached magn. -1, was distinctly orange, and briefly flared.

I had posted a 'heads-up' with sky trajectory charts for the Netherlands on
twitter, and several people went out and saw it.

Cygnus NG-13 also seen but very faint.
