    Observations of satellites with (more or less) periodic brightness
    variations.
    The reported times are those of the last timed maximum.
    7 x 50 binoculars used. Sky was excellent but I had to stop
    while observing 88-  6 A due to clouds coming in rapidly.

    1) 65- 65 C: brief flashes; difficult to determine a period.
      Timings are:
      1.62 1.06 2.72 3.66 2.12 2.75 4.69 0.95 5.46 1.01
    2) 96- 71 B: reconstructed from voice recording after forgetting
      to reset the stopwatch prior to counting the maxima.
    3) 65- 34 A: There was also an ondulation in the maximum brightness.
