    After a frosty night (up to -6 d C) the sky was crispy clear
    this morning.
    Before going to work I could observe the new Zenit-2 rocket that
    launched Meteor-3M 1.
    It was a low pass in the east at 12 d elevation.
    Due to this and my using 7x35 bino's it was sometimes hard to 
    see the flashes. But I could get several timings of 10 periods.

    Timings and (flash#): 6.19(10) 6.40(20) 7.61(32) 22.64(68)
    18.47(97) 6.29(107) 6.30(117) 6.37(127) sec.
    
    A nice flasher. Hope to see it soon on some higher passes.
