    I found a new bright geosync satellite on April 05
    and followed it for nearly three hours until it
    entered the Earth's shadow 23:51.3 UTC.
    
    Around 23:01 UTC it was simultaneously visible
    with IntlSat 5-3 Rk, Cosmos 1783, Atlantic Bird 3
    and Atlantic Bird 2.
    
    IntlSat 5-3 Rk (1981-119B, 13007) was flashing
    with FP 8 seconds. Its a Centaur upper stage with
    very slowly increasing FP.
    (1997 Oct 16 FP 6 seconds
     2000 Jun 10 FP 7 seconds)
    
    Cosmos 1783 is a slowly tumbling OKO early warning
    satellite, which didn't reach its intended orbit due
    to a failure of the fourth stage of the Molniya 8K78M.
    (FP about 65 seconds)

    I found the bright geosync again April 06.
    
    Observation with Mintron 12V1C-EX and lens 75 mm f/1.3
    each frame integrated for 1.28 seconds.
