    During my last observation session in the night of July 6 to 7 I saw
    this object low SoutEast as a
    magnitude +1 object.
    I identified it as Kosmos 2263, a Tselina 2 type Kosmos.
    I was strengthened in my identification as my friend-meteor-observer
    had photographed another
    Tselina 2 Kosmos (1994-077A) at different nights. That means the
    object should be an easy object to the naked eye.
    My observation time: 01:07:08 UT
