    Last night it was clear for awhile, so I was playing around with my new telescope, and picked
    molyina 1-52 for it to track. I was looking through the eyepeice, something I rarely have done,
    since I mainly observe with the video system.
    
    Anyways
    
    I observed Molniya 1-52 between 3:04 to 3:07 UTC ( Dec 31 )
    
    It was around 3 h 5 m R.A -5 deg 32 min Dec at 3:06 UTC.
    
    I would estimate the flashes were brighter then mag 8 at that time.
    
    Cloudy skies tonight:(
