    All I can is wow !
    
    Ekran 18 ( 19090 ) is slowly flaring around 1 minute, from mag 10 to mag 7. I call it a flare, as
    no quick flash of light, ie flashing sat.
    
    So it's faint, then gets nice and bright, then faint again.
    
    Being doing that for 20 minutes.
    
    Time is 7:24 UTC ( Apr 3 )
    
    Sat around 
    
    14 h 48 m R.A
    -9 deg 46 min Dec
    
    Being capture on video.
