    I aimed my scope at Cosmos 1888 (  18384 ) to look at it for the first time. 
    I see it slowly flares, ie it's rotates slowly. So another to add to my list, so slow rotating geo sat's
    While observing one of flares, as I call it, a sat came by.
    I went to id it, no match so far. Since I have no positions for it, can't get a orbit. So it escapes.

    Hipparcos #79059
    RA (J2000.0): 16 08 16.65
