    Hello everyone,
    
    	Yesterday, the sky was very clear and I could track once more Gorizont 23
    (#21533 91046A) with my C8. I tried to measure the pattern more precisely.
    The pattern was : F'fmfF': a little flash more than last time. Gorizont was
    always visible but very faint.
    
    mag : F = 6-8  f=10  m=8
    
    Times of different parts of the pattern :
    	F --> f = 12.8"
    	F --> m = 27.1"
    	F --> f = 38.5"
    	F --> F = 51.2"
    
    PPAS format :
    91- 46 A 00-03-05 00:35      MJ        0.2  32 51.2   T=1637.5 F'fmfF'
    
    
    12.77827586	27.082	38.5185	51.1728125
    
    	For the first time, I saw Anik D1 (#13431 82082A). Very quick and small
    flashes.
    
    82- 82 A 00-03-04 23:45      MJ  137.6 0.01100  1.38  F'F'
