    I recommend 26043 99073B
    Cosmos 2368 Molniya-M r1     437 x 218 km
    which I observed at magnitude +1 yesterday. Timed period with my
    wristwatch only - 5 periods in 15 seconds.
    It is now entering shadow in the evening at 55N and 225 km, (so it can
    be seen down to about 45N), moving S. (Shadow exit 49S and 400 km)
    
    Feb.9, before Alan's decay time, evening 'visibility' near 58S (NB),
    morning 60N (NB)
    
    I tried 17:27-17:45 for ETS-6, but there was a band of clouds from
    Gemini to Eridani, which moved slowly in almost the same direction,
    so its edge was near the predicted ETS position all the time :-(>
