    While waiting for a different sat to pass by, I noticed a nice flashing satellite.
    I ran a check, to see which one it was.
    It was Ariane 5, catalog number 29275.
    Observed flashing to the 10th mag at 8:56 UTC ( Aug 5 )
    Might be hard to see, in this video
    Was over 20,000 km away at the time.
    It's got a low perigee, so won't stay in orbit for long.
