    Hi Russell,
    
     
    
    A short notice before any precise treatment of my observations :
    
    at 19h12m-19h13m UT , I observed tonight visually and photographically both 2013-01 C and D near Gamma Pegasi, in good agreement with Calsky ephemeris - maybe as accurately as at one or two seconds. The 2013-01 ABCD satellites don't appear in Calsky database, but they showed up using the fonction "satellites within interval".
    
    I didn't catch objects A and B. 
    
    2013-01 D is nicely flashing on my photographs on a 0.43 sec period. Visually, using binoculars, object C appeared the first, constant at mag 5.5 and object D followed it at mag 6.5. I wasn't able to detect the flashing pattern visually in a poor sky not far from the Moon.

     The unknown at 181343.40 on January 15 has been identified as the first 
    launch
    of 2013. Probably 13-01D, but all four objects would be very close.
    
    regards
    Russell
