    I was lucky to see Gorizont 13 (86-090A, 17083) last night.  
    For the next several nights the Moon will be a big problem for 
    one this faint.  (They weren't all as bright as +6.5.)

    Gorizont 23 (91-046A, 21533) is quite a bit brighter, and with 
    its shorter flash period as well is more fun.
    Again last night I saw without magnification some Superbird A
    (89-041A, 20040) flashes.  Since its flashes are so bright, I 
    was wondering if it might be possible for a photographer to 
    get an interesting photo of Superbird A flashes near the Moon 
    one of these nights.

    Part of my binoculars strap broke last night, and I learned 
    how conveniently useful that strap is!
