    Hi Jesus Pacheco,
    
    I have been observing 13007/81-118B since January 2005. At present 81 118B
    shows flashes +6 and minimum 7.5 with period of 14.52 seconds.

    Hi Alberto,
    Well I guess it flashes like so for the geometry. In principle, I didn't
    believe that a rocket's stage flashes so bright.
    
    It flashes with that magnitude (aproximately -2 or -1) at about 15 degress
    over horizont. Then, atlas' flashes was between 2 and 3 of magnitude,
    visually with naked eye.
    
    I'll be monitoring its passage over my place to confirm this flashes.
    
    Regards.
