    Good, now I have a better idea of when to look for it's flashing.
    
    Last night even if I had to work, I still managed to observe flashes from it.
    
    I aimed the video camera at the area it should be between 3:50 to 4:40 UTC ( Aug 17 ) as a guess.
    Wasn't sure when it would flash.
    
    I was off the mark in pointing, oh well. That what happens when I have to work that night, less
    time to observe, and make sure I was at the right area. 
    
    But I was able to observe it flash nicely, including some expected multi flashes:) I so like the
    Symphonie geo sat's with there 3 solar panels.

    Some flashes were at least mag 6 are brighter.
    
    Here's the times I saw flashes.
