Just a reminder that the new Zenit rocket (94- 77 B) currently has evening
visibility. I observed it on December 14, 1994. It was quite impressive 
(mag 3) and flashing at a very fast pace. The brightness changes had a 
small amplitude (1 mag?) so I couldn't make as accurate timings as Bjoern
Gimle has done last week. I timed 80 flashes in 32.2 seconds, i.e. a
flash period of 0.402 s.

These archive requests should be sent to seesat-l-request.

I will be absent from 22/12 til 29/12, I hope seesat runs well without
supervision :-)

Happy Xmas to all of you,
