    I decided to check up on THURAYA 1 ( 26578 ) as it drifting across the sky.
    
    At around 2:26:25 UTC ( Aug 28 ) it gave a slow flash. The flash lasted a couple of seconds, which
    tells me it's slowly rotating.
    
    I will have to use the scope on it, to see how long it takes between flashes.
    
    THURAYA 1 is a boeing HS702 series
