    Not the clear sky I hoped for, had to deal with clouds once and awhile.
    
    Express 1 ( 23319 ) is flashing. It flashing every approx 4 minutes.

    20 h 48 m R.A
    -12 deg 22 min
    
    Observed flashing between 6:45 to 7:01 UTC ( June 7 ).  
    
    At around 7:55 UTC, a APT ( 27646 ) made a nice high altitude pass. It went through Cygnus, and
    was easy to see with the eye. Nice to see a APT with the eye again, been awhile.
    
    I observed Express AM-11 ( 28234 ) in a twlight sky. It never got faint enough, not to see, and
    then gave a bright flash, every approx 3 min 23 seconds.
