    While searching for meteors, one slow flasher caught my attention.  A stacked

       EGP is near the vicinity but trajectory is way out. This unid flasher 
    passed
    between Beta Ceti and 7 Ceti and moving towards the bottom of the frame.
       The closest candidate is cosmos 1536 fit the trajectories but ppas database
    did not indicate this is flashing. The period is roughtly 7.3 seconds... which
    kind of rule out EGP as well.
    
       So is this cosmos 1536 ( 84-13A) afterall?
    
    Merry Xmas to All

    I wonder if this could be the long lost MDS 1 Fairing2 which had a 7 second 
    flash period.
