After more than 48 hours of thick clouds, finally, although continuous
cloudy (also note the relatively high temperatures with minimum above 22 °
C), were thinner cirrus. Today was no forecast of bright satellites, so I
spent trying to photograph. However, in the end I photographed three
different satellites
Again shone Yaogan 29, at first glance to magnitude 0, in the picture I
have left as magnitude +1 (no doubt the influence of clouds put it
difficult). The brightness was yellow.
I think I'll have to add to the list Yaogan 29 bright satellites to follow.
Although not very accurate, I get the impression, by previous sightings,
which Yaogan 29, tends to shine for azimuths ranging between 270 ° and 320
°, the height does not seem to have much (although almost all my sightings
have been between 30 ° and 60 °) . Below 270 ° low brightness rapidly
disappearing relatively soon.
Cosmo-SkyMed 2 has shone a bit more than expected.

3602, 36.83890º N, 2.4498º W, 30 m, Almería (Spain)
