Hello Everyone.

Okean-O Rk continues to slow down. In PPAS format:
84-065 C 99-08-23 01:33:06.9 JDG  30.8 0.5  25  1.23  6.5->inv
99-039 B 99-08-23 00:56:06.8 JDG  60.7 0.5 100  0.607 3.0->inv
99-039 B 99-08-23 02:34:11.0 JDG  60.0 0.5 100  0.600 3.0->inv

Iridium 48 produced some minor flashing (01:24 UTC 23 August - 310az, 20el).
Iridium 71 seems to be in a slow roll.   For most of the passes over the last 
few weeks it appeared to be steady.
Iridium 24 gave a nice 1x flash at 02:04:43.3 just over Arcturus (275az, 
28el).  I am uncertain if it was the only flash or the last in a series.

Cheers
