    Here's a PPAS report from some hours ago, with moonlight and 
    scattered cirrus, using 8x42 binoculars:
    
    81- 57 B 04-03-07 02:41:08.0 EC 1201.2 0.2  70 17.160 +5.0->inv
    
    So its flash period seems to have accelerated by .27 second in 
    nine nights.  So far it's one of the easiest flashing geosynchs
    to observe.
    
    Mike was going to check on elset anomalies with Gorizont 27,
    to determine if in fact it's trapped in the eastern hemisphere
    rather than drifting westward.
