After several days where it was sunny in daytime and clouds came in from sea as 
soon as twilight set it, this was finally a clear evening and night.

USA 186 made a low elevation pass in the west just under Arcturus. It was 
captured on 3 images, one of which I discarded for a timing error. The trails 
were bright, with the satellite showing irregular brightness.

NOSS 2-3 C was captured by chance in one of the images as well, but the trail 
was very faint.

Later that night, suffering from a bout of insomnia, I targetted USA 224. 
However, imaging near Polaris during a 6 minute interval between 23:50:00 and 
23:56:10 UT yielded nothing.
