hello all,

the last two evenings I was able to observe Gorizont 23 =
91- 46 A = 21553 again around 21h UT.
When there are no high clouds it is still an easy target
in binoculars, flashing at maximum brightness of
mag +5.

I also received an observations from Jason Hatton.

Together they clearly indicate that the period is going up
with about 0.01 seconds per day.

May 1 : JPH: 50.45  +- 0.01
May 2 : KJ : 50.466 +- 0.0015
May 3 : KJ : 50.477 +- 0.0015
May 4 : KJ : 50.491 +- 0.006

Right now the good wheather has finished, can somebody else
take over ?

All accurate observations are very much appreciated !

happy observing,
