    Last night I observed one-power flashes from Superbird B1 
    (92-010A, 21893) from about 4:11 until about 4:36 UTC
    (January 7 UTC).  This was from about RA 2:28 to 2:53 
    (J2000).  It seemed to me that the flash at about 4:24:22 
    (about RA 2:41-42) was the brightest.
    Gorizont 23 (91-046A, 21533) was flashing with a period of
    about 64.0 seconds.
    Gorizont 17 (89-004A, 19765) was flashing with a period of
    about 66 seconds with fairly easy half-period secondary 
    flashes.  A couple of nights ago it and Gorizont 16 
    (88-071A, 19397) were flashing in the same FOV, but I 
    could not find Gorizont 16 last night.
    I was able to see good old Superbird A (89-041A, 20040)
    for just under eight minutes (3:12:55-3:20:47).
    These were all seen from the BCRC location.
