Hello everyone,
The message about 'Unidentified Molniya' reminds me one evening (Feb
21st 1998, 17:50 UT) when I saw a bright, 1m star betwen Orion and
Taurus - RA 5h00m, Dec +9 deg. The star was fading and I lost it 30
seconds later. It wasn't moving at all - as I could see with naked eye.
     I didn't know what to do, I was so surprised. An email to AAVSO
didn't have a response. When I sent another one to Sky&Telescope, Alan
M. MacRobert told me, they have had given up solving that kind of
observations long ago. I couldn't find a solution, but when I saw that
email on SeeSat I realized, that could be it. The observing site was:
53.55N, 14.43E,100M.
                                                         Anyone to help?
                                                     Grzegorz Koralewski
