USA 129 too faint this time

I had clear skies again this evening. The only potentially interesting pass though was that of USA 129 at 20:23 UTC.

I did see it visually, with the naked eye, as it crossed the Big Dipper: it was very faint though. Magnitude +4 I guess. There is a hint of a trail on the photograph, but nothing measurable alas.
