    Last night while looking for some DSP flashes with my 8x42 
    binocular, I saw a different one flash a degree or two above 
    and left of the DSP position.  I was getting a flash period of 
    about 69.3 seconds.  Mike got it in the telescope, and it was 
    much more interesting, with secondary flashes as frequent as 
    every 8.2 seconds approximately, with one set of those being a 
    triple maximum.  Later Mike identified it as Eutelsat 1F5 
    (88-063B, 19331).
