    Oh Ya !
    
    At 6:43 UTC ( Aug 5 ) Galaxy 11 ( 26038 ) is flaring oh so bright:)
    
    It's roughly 5th magnitude.
    
    Capturing flare, on wide feild setup, which is pointed at Milstar 6. So Galaxy 11 is off to the side.
    
    Also capturing through the scope. 
    
    I have 2 video camera's for awhile, so I can have twice the fun at night:)
    
    This Boeing HS702 has the same type of antenna's as Intelsat 1R.
