    Hi Everyone,
        I observed the Cosmos 2369 rocket a little while
    ago.  It was my first time timing flash period, so
    this might be less accurate than usual but... I got 15
    flashes in 41.91 seconds, yielding a 2.8 second flash
    period.  This tumbler continues to slow down pretty
    regularly.  Ed Cannon on June 16 found a 1.2 second
    period.  I figured this would be a good pass to try my
    hand at a flash timing, because it was pretty bright
    and very cloth to zenith.  Hopefully I will be able to
    see the shuttle in shadow tonight, but my best pass is
    very low to the horizon so it might be too dim.
