My first USA 193 (06-057A) observation

I just observed the (reportedly failed) spysat USA 193 (06-057A) for the first time. Usually it stays too faint for me, but this time it was very bright, about mag. +1, just before eclipse entry, crossing Gemini. It was moving fast, a very fine sight. Below is the image I obtained.

Full report on the other observations of this fine evening later.
