    As well the Navid payload as the Safir 2 rocket body showed nice transits to me.
    12005B varied regularly between magnitude +4.5 and +6.5, so reasonably visible
    when at brightest for my aging eyes.
    By counting 22, two maxima as one, so in fact 44 maxima
    I was able to determine its real flash period: 0.59 s
    12005A also varied, much more slowly, but was unexpectedly bright in its maxima,
    with magnitude +2.5 it was easily visible for a short time.
    Its flash period was: 12.9 determined as an average from 3 periods.
