    Like I fiqure, it's bright enough to see in Binoculars.
    I aimed at Gam Cyn located at
    20 h 22 m R.A
    +40 deg 15 min Dec
    As the sat was going to pass that atar at around 1:43 utc ( Aug 22 )
    At the appointed time, it zipped by and was flashing.
    It looked to be between mag 7 and 8, will have to check on that estimate.
    Used the wide feild method to see it.
    Video shortly, time to go get flashed by Amos 5i.
