    Hi all,
    I just had a very fine pass of USA 129 (96-072A) with it flaring to -1 again at 
    about 19:56:50 UTC. One very crisp bright trail image (starting 10 seconds after 
    the flare peak, with the sat fading from +1 to +2) plus a second faint trail 
    image (sat around +3.5).
    I have it 0.6s early relative to Mike's elset 07099.85651120 and on-track, so 
    still no manoeuvre it seems.
    Positions will follow later, I hope to catch some more this evening.
    Nice image of USA 129 still being bright in the bum of Leo is here:
