    Its raining for once, and I have some chance to review many observations for
    UNIDs seen recently. I had seen one bright (mag +3 or better) flash last
    night, naked eye, with cirrus clouds in area, 10-15 deg NNE of Antares. I
    hoped it was a geosynch (since it was near my declination for the Clarke
    Belt) but it did not return and did seem to have a very dubious eastern
    "vector" to its flash. On Findsat I have two possibles in area:
    
    NORAD 1883, INTL 65082EY, Titan 3C deb
    NORAD 25727, INTL 99024A, Orion 3
    
    I thought it was moving to east fairly fast, which would point to the
    debris, 532 vs 2122 miles range. Anyone have any experience with Orion 3
    being a flasher?
