    Satellites can certainly go into eclipse and emerge a few minutes
    later still above the horizon. I have seen this on a few occasions.
    If the duration is only 2 minutes then the eclipse would be slight,
    and the brightness would dim by perhaps 1 magnitude.
    In the case quoted (ISS eclipse entry Jun 11 2215) it will not exit
    until 2250 over the southern Indian Ocean, so there must be a problem
    with Alphonse Pouplier's predictions.
