    NOAA 13 (93-050A, 22739) did a spectacular series of seven or 
    eight bright double flashes (about .20-.25 second separation) 
    as it went down in the north, well past culmination.  The 
    brightest maxima were probably -2.  Its flash period is 
    around 15 seconds.
    
    MDS 1 (02-003A, 27367) did two or three very bright flashes 
    in the southeast, probably would have been visible without 
    binoculars.
    
    Molniya 3-42 (92-067A, 22178) was visible without binoculars
    high in the south, flashes to at least +3.
