    Last night (March 12) at 18:33 EST, I was looking for a pass by Progress
    M-42; I saw a bright (-3) but short (1.5 sec) flare right were Progress
    M-42 should have been (NW, 35 el.). I don't know if it was from
    Progress M-42 but I have not seen the rest of the pass.
    
    At 18:35 EST, as I was still trying to find it with binoculars, I
    spotted another object, very faint (invisible naked eye), North, 45 el.
    traveling East to West. I tought it was worth mentionning because there
    was a discussion lately about sattelites traveling East to West. Any
    idea what it was ?
