First, I want to state officially for the record that I am absolutely NOT annoyed that the only clear (well, partly clear) night in weeks was right at full Moon. Seriously, I recall that Bruce Watson has, at times, designated a particular satellite as "Satellite of the Month". Somewhat in that spirit, I would like to call attention to Cosmos 2228, right now. She is presently making fine evening passes for many SeeSat subscribers. I observed and timed her last night while she was producing rather spectacular mag -1 flashes. Jay, I don't know what criteria you applied to judge her sister ship C* 1953 as suitable for VISUAL.TLE, but perhaps C* 2228 would qualify also. She was giving off these very brief flashes at 12.37s intervals near culmination at only 55 degrees altitude. Mostly she was 4th or invisible, with many intermediate flashes at roughly 3s intervals. Later in the pass, the bright flashes were not seen, but fainter flashes, possibly at a different rate, continued. C* 2228 is a satellite which should be observed over as long an arc as possible, because, like her sister Tselinas, she often presents entirely different flash patterns during different parts of a pass; also different patterns at successive passes. 2228 1 22286U 92094A 97345.12393866 +.00000228 +00000-0 +31172-4 0 02128 2 22286 082.5262 194.3315 0025844 169.4162 190.7598 14.73862734266733 PPAS(beginning): Walter I.
