Hi everybody,

      Tonight I observed my first geosync. As I don't have a telescope,
I have to observe them when they flare and Gorizont 14 (#17969) makes
a perfect subject. I observed it from 22:05 to 22:20 local time (03:05 to
03:20 UTC on Feb. 16). Flares lasted about 1.0 to 1.5 sec at mag +5
and the mean period was measured at 84.8 sec based on 11 flares observed.
It was at 175° azimuth and 48° elevation.
