    I have uploaded 5 photos of GAIA at :
    
    http://www.flickr.com/groups/astronomers-forum/discuss/72157638852900076/
    
    From a careful examination on my 48 photos I derived an accurate  10.07 V magnitude for GAIA at 19.3h UT.

    On 19 December 2013 from 19.0 h to 19.5 h TU, I took several series of photos centered on the coordinates shown in realtime by satflare.com.
    
    The satellite GAIA looks like an additional 10th-mag orange-reddish star. It moved slowly in the field as expected.
