    Hello all,
    
    here is an overview of some observations reported to SeeSat-L during the
    past
    months.  As you might remember some geostationary flashers have periodical
    variations of the rotation period
    (see http://users.skynet.be/satimage/bwgs/kj/gorizont.htm)
    
    Gorizont 23 reached its minimum period around February 2003.
    
    If history repeats itself, its maximum period should be reached around
    September-
    November timeframe, and then it should start accelerating again,
    so keep an eye on this one.
