Hello Observers;

 Last night August 16/17 I saw a real flashing satellite going from about
south west to north north west. It was flasing off and on regular until it
got near 45 degrees then sorta skipped a flash but then resumed. It faded
into Ursa Major.
 Anyone know what it might have been? The flashes were less than a 1001
count, mabey 0.5 second. I did notice it was sorta light red color.

 I'm at N44 W63 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. It was first noticed at
0117 UT and went till 0119 UT, it was a slow mover.



PS: My UT was off, my B-day was on the 16th and turning 45 !! made me
    really happy!! :(

    Sorry about screw up. 
    I received an email and it possibly could have been Okean sat.
