I observed this Pegasus rocket(1995-17D/23548) for the first time this
evening and found out that it was nicely flashing with 7 or 14s.  Flashes
were sharp with a maximum magnitude of 7.  
There are few observations of it in the PPAS.  Only from Russell Eberst and
Mike McCants.
Maybe we should follow these objects on a more frequent basis.
Unfortunately I won't be able to see Minisat's Pegasus rocket.
