    This is just to mention that Cosmos 1341 also is an Oko:
    1 13080U 82016A   03259.97943119  .00000551  00000-0  10000-3 0  4182

    I wonder how many of those are now flashing.  It was 
    flashing earlier each night, and also the flash episode 
    was ending farther away (i.e., south of) Polaris nightly.  
    Circumstances including weather have prevented observing 
    the last three nights, and soon it will be in evening 
    twilight here, left only to those east of here for a 
    while longer.  Flash period was about 12.90 to 13.00 last 
    Saturday evening (Sept. 21 UTC).  It was not hard to see 
    with 10x50 binoculars for 20 to 30 minutes, even at a 
    range of about 13,000 km.
    Hope to get a chance to see it and some flaring geosats
