    Using a pair of 10*50 binoculars, I observed MOLNIYA 1-88 ( 23420 )pass a few degrees from
    jupiter. Time was 4:39 UTC ( June 15 ) 
    
    I later observed by mistake Gorizont 17 ( 19765 ) flashing. I was looking for something else.
    
    I gave a bright flash approx every 65 seconds give are take. The bright flash seemed to be in the
    Mag 6 are brighter range. I observed fainter flashes in between the bright flashes.
    
    Time was 6:36:05 UTC ( June 15 ) for one of them.
    
    So it was around
    
    19 h 56 m R.A
    
    -18 deg 15 min Dec
    
    I observed MOLNIYA 1-63 around 7:08 UTC ( June 15 )
