    While looking for the NOSS 2-1 trio (1990- 50 C,D, E) I saw this flasher.
    The first flash was magnitude -1, later they were just mag 5.
    Using Skymap and a recent alldat-file; two candidates remained: Meteor
    2-14 (1986-39 A) and Transit 5B-7 Rocket. In the PPAS archive there are
    just S entries for Meteor 2-14 and none for 65-65 B. The Transit rocket pass
    fits the observed track  the best.
