    Intelsat 515

    I observed a double flash at
    
    2:49:54 UTC ( Apr 7 )
    3:06:01
    4:54:53 
    5:06:59 
    
    And a single flash at
    
    4:07:30 
    
    So not the nicest flashing geo sat to observe.
    
    Around 7:00:34 UTC ( Apr 7 ) Cosmos 2289 ( 23204 ) gave a slow flash. That's the only one I
    observed, when I played back the video. I was using the mount to track Intelsat 515, so it just
    happened to be passing by, when it flashed. 
    
    Around 8:39 UTC, globalstar 35 ( 25851 ) passed across the feild view, and 5th magnitude are
    brigher, so it was flaring up. So a lucky catch.
