Very cloudy sky with numerous small cracks and some other small clearing,
which still, just let see something.
Tiangong-2 appeared to 05:08:21 UTC for a moment in a clearing near the
star Elnath in another light shone Capella, so I could easily determine a
magnitude of 0 to Tiangong-2. I also took a partial picture that has helped
me to determine without doubt Tiangong-2.
Just before, a small crack in the clouds, just between a few minutes of arc
and a degree of arc west of the Pleiades a quick flare of 2-3 seconds of at
least magnitude -1, there were 2 satellites there, but the best candidate
is Meteor 2-7 (12456)
Yaogan 29 (41038) is another regular in recent days appear with magnitudes
between +1.5 and +2.5, easy to see if allowed by clouds. Today appeared
between one of the clear.
A satellite that I could follow recent days, due to the clouds, is OAO 3
(Copernicus), but in previous days (11-16 October) held flares of
magnitudes between -1.5 and +1 preferably between 05:00 UTC and 05:40 UTC

3602, 36.8390º N, 2.4498º W, 30 m, Almería (Spain)
