    Hi all,
    Just observed USA 186 (the real one this time.. ;-) ) slowly flare to mag. -1 in 
    the zenith at 21:01:10 UTC. Alas 10 seconds before my camera opened (yet I have 
    it on the image, already fading and not very bright anymore).
    Also observed a short bright flash in Camelopardalis while on the lookout for 
    USA 129 about 20:55 UTC. It was not USA 129, don't know what it was as I did not 
    have the opportunity to record a good position.
    Positions for USA 186 and other sats for this evening will follow later.
