    I watched Gorizont 23 flash for about 28 min 26aug
    from ~ 0411 - 0439 ut.
    flash period ~ 56.086 sec
    ref obs on 24aug, it slowed ~ 17 ms in 2 days,
    or ~~ 8 to 9 ms per day.  does that compute with
    previous obs? yes... I see Ed posted 17aug 56.01, so that
    would seem to be ~ 8.8 ms per day.
    it was not flashing at 0340, or at ~ 0400.
    I was not watching continuously from 0400 to the 0411
    start time, do we know the relative sunangles to
    predict when it will begin flashing 27aug at my site.
    getting lower in SW, ~242+33 az+el tonight.
    flashes seem to be ~ +4 range, I did not look
    to see if it was visible naked eye.  moon had risen
    and lower SW sky is relatively crummy.  I could see
    a +3.7 1x, but I did not really hunt to see what else
    I could see unaided.  with optics I was seeing mid-9s.
    warm 30C and calm tonight, high today 39C (in the shade)
    but I know better than to stand_out in the noonday sun.
    I hope the PPAS format is correct, I used an app named
    PPASinp.exe, but I'm not finding an author listed.
