Pre-dawn, a handful of satellites, excellent conditions despite the full
moon. In the evening, many clouds, only one satellites between clouds.
Also a UNID that could be an airplane that at 18:23:50 UTC, presumably
crosses by Menkalinan, HS only shows Cosmos 839 Deb (10412), but the object
moved at least 1/3 of its angular velocity with flashes of magnitude 0.
Of the satellites, perhaps highlight Astro H, with its defined flash group,
I leave a of the photos of it. Also, the high brightness of ERBS (15354),
as well, as in general, of almost all the satellites dominating magnitudes
of 1st and 2nd order.

Date: 11/15/2016
Astro H (Hitomi) (41337): Groups of 3 flashes, the first of magnitude 0 and
the other two of magnitude +2; If not for the most powerful flash of the
group, could pass through a distant plane. In 8 seconds there seems to be a
total of 7-8 flashes (2 groups and the first-second of the third), Time
between 05:12:08 UTC and 05:13:23 UTC (HS begin UTC), magnitudes
0 and +2

max. brightness magnitude +2.5 between RA 08h00m55s DE -15º55'04'' and RA
08h10m28s DE -18º32'13'', Time between 05:30:50 UTC and 05:33:27 UTC (HS
begin 05:30:33.0 UTC), magnitudes +1.5, +2.5
