My apologies, I sent the wrong picture this morning, it was a picture with
4 starlink tracks.

Here's the correct one:

Hi All,

After my Starlink 'train' observations of the previous days, it was time
again for something else.  During a search for another satellite I came
across with this picture.  The satellite I was looking for wasn't on it but
I found two other satellite traces.  One steady and apparently one flashing
object.  I quickly identified the steady one as Starlink 1278 or

However, the other one is a mystery to me.  The closest I got was Fengyun
1C debris(99-25DYK/36665) but it seems to be a bit of track compared to the
flashing trace on the picture.  Also RCS of 99-25DYK is small so I don't
think this is the one I am looking for.

Anyone can offer any help for identification ?

Location 51deg13min N 3deg16min E.
