    This morning I was keeping a eye on Express AM-11 ( 28234 ) I observed some flashing from it
    earlier, and quit. Don`t remember when I observed it, didn`t keep the video. I decided to check on
    it again, so I aimed at the right area and waited. 
    Shortly after I was in the right area, I noticed a bright flash at 7:29:26 UTC ( Mar 12 ) from a
    different object. Then shortly after, I observed another flash. It was Gorizont 14 ( 17969 ) So I
    decided to observe it, instead.
    I observed it until 8:15:23 UTC

    Before I observed the first flash of Gorizont 14, I observed a faint flash from Express AM-11 
    at 7:29:55 UTC. It was around 8th mag, not the easy to see, in a hazy sky.
    I think I observe Express AM-11 in the scope, instead of using the wide feild method, like I used
    to tonight, as I wanted to observe leo sats. But the weather didn`t coperate.
