    Gorizont 14 (87-040A, 17969) observed last night.  Some faint
    secondary maxima were visible; I gave up on them after the 
    Moon rose.
    87- 40 A 01-11-04 02:39:36   EC 3051.4 1.0  35 87.18  +5.5->inv; secondaries
    Also watched ASC 1 (85-076C, 15994) about 3:15-41.  Its 
    brightest maxima were very bright, possibly +2, but they were 
    also very infrequent, seemingly about every 310 seconds.  I 
    was able to see some of the flashes at 155 seconds, so I don't 
    know if the ones I missed weren't visible or if I didn't look 
    in the right place at those times.  
    Interrupted watching ASC 1 to watch good old Superbird A.  
    Gorizont 23 (91-046A, 21533) was not very bright while observed 
    around 2:50-3:10 UTC.  I lost it for a few minutes due to it 
    being that faint.  
    Observing site BCRC: 30.315N, 97.866W, 280m.
