    I was going through the video again, and I clearly I missed seeing that bright slow flash from Galaxy 8 ( 25086 ) for some reason. Just after it had occured, I had moved the scope since I hadn't notice the flash, darn.
    
    The time was around 9:06:38 UTC ( Aug 31 )
    
    So flash occured around 
    
    3 h 19 m R.A
    -9 deg 9 min Dec
    
    Was at least mag 6 range.
    
    It lasted a few seconds, so sat rotating slowly.
    
    Will have to look at Galaxy 8, tommorow and see how long it takes between flashes.
