    I went to check on Intelsat 707, a geo sat retired from service, a few months ago.
    As I watched, I noticed a faint flash, then a few minutes later, it gave a bright flash which was mag 5 are brighter. Then a few minutes later, a much fainter flash.

    Catalog number of sat, is in brackets.
