There is good news and bad news.
The good news is I have seen 69-69B ATS 5 r as outlined above, and is
flashing as normal.
The bad news is, it was not the object seen as reported a few days ago.
I have searched my file again and cannot find anything that comes near.
Another great mystery of life in the archive of lost orbiting objects.
