Hello Everyone

Viewing conditions tonight are pretty terrible.  Through a clear area in the 
haze I was able to observe the Okean-O Rk for about 15 seconds.  It was 
flashing in a pattern similar to Globalstar 36 r (25625, 99004E) - 3 quick 
flashes and a pause in about 1 second.  The flashes were about a +2.0 mag.  
These were observed at 02:28:30 UTC, 18 July.
