    Its actually below YOUR horizon Rob, so you cant currently observe it.
    It will come around your longitudes in a few months.
    I have sent Rob by private e-mail HIGHFLY output for his location,
    using my latest geoflsh.tle file as  TLE input. The visible
    satellites include several other Gorizont satellites. 
    BTW all the flasher are near GEO, not quite geosynchronous.
