    While following Milstar 3  #25724 in telescope saw at 2.03.23 UT April 24
    close to Milstar 3 position a flash. I stopped tracking Milstar and observed
    flashes of 7and 6 mag every approx 15 seconds. They appeared to be
    stationary drifting thru star field. Not visible between flashes. It stopped
    after about 4 minutes. The position of Milstar 3 when flash first observed
    was RA 10.2927  +11.9247, at my site 198 az 61 el. I haven't figured this
    out yet. Can somebody tell me what I saw?
