    Mike Waterman reported Gorizont 29 (22907) flashing a few
    weeks ago.  It's been rising very slowly in the east, and 
    we finally got to see it here.  PPAS report:
    
    93- 72 A 04-04-10 04:58:32.3 EC  791.0 0.3  10 79.10  +5.5->inv
    
    NOAA 13 (22739), a few of the maxima may have been +4, but 
    it was a bit tricky for me:
    
    93- 50 A 04-04-10 03:47:05   EC  161.5 0.4  34  4.75  
    
    We haven't been able to confirm Raduga 16, which seemed to
    be a good match for an unid last month.  Mike has tried with 
    the 20cm (8-inch) dob a couple of times.  He saw Galaxy 7 
    (22205, 92-072A) with the telescope, but its maxima were 
    pretty faint.  
    
    BCRC site: 30.315N, 97.866W, 280m.
    
    We got there late, after attending the meeting of the local
    astronomy club.
