The decaying Priroda rocket ( 23849) was observed this morning May 17 at 
10:52:05 UT. Height 128 st. mi. magnitude 0 to +2 with a period of 14.2 
seconds (based on 5 cycles totaling 70.1 seconds). With luck we will have 
one more pass tomorrow.

NOSS: A search was conducted using Bjoern's technique beginning at 08:23 UT 
through 10:02 UT. No unidentified objects were spotted moving along the 
various predicted orbit tracks, though there were intervals of clouds during 
the window.
