    While playing back the video, from the other night, I noticed a bright flash. It came from Skynet 4A ( 20401 ).
    The flash occured around 2:05 utc ( Aug 21 ) and was mag 7 are brighter.
    Using a intergrated orbit for 90061, I picked an area of sky, where 90061 would pass by at a somewhat close range, and predicted to be bright enough to see, using the wide feild. I started recording ahead of time, of when it was to pass, and some time after, since uncertaintly in when it would really pass. Nothing was seen.
