    Playing back the video from the other night, the flashes from Raduga 16 were in the faint side, and only visible for a couple of minutes, as a short time after the flashes got bright enough to notice, raduga 16 and Gorizont 26 entered earth's shadow.
    
    So raduga 16 in this case, might only flash before it goes into eclipse.
    
    Now that I see, it's taking less time, then what's was in the ppas database, it's worth observing again. If I see a geo sat is taking longer to flash over time, then I quit observing it.
