    Yuri 3B (91-060A, 21668) was seen flashing brightly a few 
    minutes before Superbird A on Friday evening (about 3:15:20 
    Dec 20 UTC).  My last recorded click was at about 4:19.  
    With my 10x50s it was seen sometimes every 73 seconds, but 
    other times only after 146 seconds, and the magnitudes vary 
    in a complex way, but the brightest are at least +4.0.  A 
    guest was with us that evening and last night, and he 
    enjoyed it and Superbird and EGP and USA 102 and a number 
    of other objects.  
    May have seen another flashing Oko Friday evening and hope
    to confirm it this evening if the weather will hold.
    I'll volunteer to try to do positional obs on EGP when the 
    TLEs are withdrawn.  I might be able to manage that one --
