Had a nice zenith pass of Meteor 1-6 (#04583) Tuesday evening,
Dec. 29, from Torrance, CA.  Satellite was moving along at a
pretty nice clip, and tumbling as it did so.  Didn't time the
flash period, but it was around 6-8 seconds.  Peak magnitude
around +1.5.  Altitude for my pass was only 237 km (128 nmi).

Also saw nice passes of ETS-7 H2 R/B, Cosmos 2347 and
ISS (Zarya) low in the north.  --Rob
