    The Intelsat 21 geo sat launched back Aug 19, is giving a nice show.
    It flashing to at least mag 6 are brighter, at 3:08 utc ( Aug 30 )
    Not bad, didn't have to wait until they retired it from service, to see it flash :)
    I now wait for it, to become operational. I had seen a image of it, and looked like antenna would be a good source for causing flares.
