    Greetings,
    
    On the evening of the 24th I was able to observe Gorizont 14, Gorizont 15, 
    90007 (00-653A) and then an UNID geo.
    
    PPAS for the first three:
    87- 40 A 05-09-25  3:02:47   SDL       0.3  27 89.47  dT=2415.7
    88- 28 A 05-09-25  3:43      SDL 655.9 0.2  48 13.665 6->inv
    00-653 A 05-09-25  5:38      SDL       0.2  23 91.62  dT=2107.3
    
    00-653A was visible about two hours earlier than I observed in August, 
    nearly a month ago. 
    
    The UNID was located at RA 23:46 and Dec. ?13:35 at 05:44:10 UTC.  It 
    flashes with a period of approximately 10 seconds and was visible between 
    05:43 and 05:45 UTC.  The timings last night were: 19.51 (2), 9.83, 9.95, 
    9.84, 9.96, 9.91, 9.90, 9.87, 10.0, 9.91, 9.90.  I have actually seen this 
    one several times during the last week and it was quite bright (roughly 
    mag 3).  From my location, it flashes very nearly the same time each night 
    for approximately 2 minutes, as seen in 10x50s.
    
    Best and clear, dark skies.
