At last a clear window in the weather and a few minutes ago I was treated to 
a fast and furious pass by USA 129
At a range of just  340 km it was perhaps a little brighter than predicted 
( 1.7m ) and was certainly moving.

I had in my mind that this was a cylindrical bird , but it looks like it  is 
the typical "T" shape design
Managed to capture a couple of frames despite the rapid progress it made 
before entering shadow.
