    On 12/23 18:09 PST = 12/24 2:09 UTC, I think I saw a sat flashing from
    mag 2 to mag 0, low in the NW, with a flash period of 0.8 s.
    A possible match is 19573 Cosmos 1975.
    (I used mccants.tle predicting magnitudes down to mag 7.)
    I did not have optical aid to look more closely, and in a murky sky it
    was hard to define the azimuth or reference stars!
    A tentative observation.
    Best, Mark
