    There was only 1 flash observed during the 3 minutes I watched it in the 
    telescope. It was between 2 close dim 9.4 mag stars before a 6 mag star when 
    it flared to approx -1.5 mag . I don't normally do flash reporting and the 1 
    second duration is a resonable guess.
    
    Crescent moon :)
