    Ron Welch reported a flashing object August 7, 1048UT
    ar RA (1950) 20h 32.2min, dec -9.71 from his Canberra location.
    I have identified this as 79 35E, #17783, a Block DM rocket
    in a near GEO orbit that put raduga 5 ( #11343 ) up there.
    I have added it to my list of geoflashers at 
    http://home.iprimus.com.au/aberesford/tle/geoflsh.txt
    At the same time I have removed Cosmos 1030 ( 11015) as it
    it now has such a large drag it would be hard to follow.
    
    I bring it to list memebers attention. The current perigee
    is just south of the equator and at only 105Km, so the drag is
    large. Here are the latest 5 elsets from OIG. It will oviously decay
    much closer to the equator than most of the molniya orbit objects.
