Hi Tony This evening I made my first observation of NASA's Nanosail-D spacecraft during the 19.14 UT pass over the UK. It was fairly bright with the naked eye and easy to see. I got two images of it passing through Perseus and then near Orion's Belt. I didn't see any flares though. Canon 450D, 24-70mm F/2.8 lens
