    I have an opening in the clouds today:)
    While keeping an eye on Gorizont 5 for flashing, I noticed a leo sat passing by.
    I started to track it, as it sure looked to be cosmos 2327 ( 23773 ) if I allow for error's in path and time.
    For example at 8:46:52.692 UTC ( Apr 8 ) it buzzed a Mag 4.1 star called del ser
    located at 
    RA (J2000.0): 15 34 48.19
    declination +10 32 19.9
    So it arrived earlier, then the lastest orbit gives.
    It's in a high orbit, so atmo drag won't play around with it.
    I checked to make sure, that the time displayed by the gps time inserter is correct. It's fine, from what I can see.
    So to me, it seems they twecked it's orbit, so far.
    Now to wait, for a orbit update, and see if my thoughts are correct. Either that are I am seeing things!
    Me get no other sat around that area, at the time.
