    Hi all,
    
     
    
    Last night, on 15 Dec 2013  ( from 17h42m to 18h18m UT) I followed photographically USA 179 Rocket (2004-34B) nicely flashing.
    
    The photometric period - roughly determined - was of about 5.8 seconds.
    
    According to  Calsky the Height above Earth varied during the observed pass from H= 9250 km to 9520 km.
