    	The past several nights, except for last night, I have been able to
    observe Gorizont 16 (#19397).  On each night it was already flashing when I
    first trained my binoculars onto its predicted location.  So by about 02:20
    to 02:30 each night it was already flashing.  I wasn't able to determine
    if it stopped flashing after that because the clouds would become too thick,
    but the flashing lasted at least an hour on each night.  One of the nights I
    measured 30 periods in 2835.1 seconds, giving a period of 94.5 sec.  All the
    flashes I saw were in the +4 to +5 mag range.
