    Yup eh, I found found another flashing geo sat! 
    Again one I was looking for:)
    
    I saw 4 flashes from it, I get a approx flash time of 1 min 23 seconds ( 83 sec ).
    
    It flashed just south of a mag 7.6 star located at 
    
    RA (J2000.0): 05 03 02.09
    declination +09 22 56.7
    
    So time was between 1:24 to 1:25 UTC ( Jan 18 ) 2005.
    
    It gave the brighest flash to the west of the star, say 1 degrees away. Looks like a short time it
    flashes brightly.

    I have to observe it tommorow around the same time, if clear.
    
    Now to observe SYMPHONIE 1 for flashing, when I get around to it. Soon I get my fix of milstar
    flares:)
    
    I know I am a weird sat observer.
    
    Video of flashing, to appear latter. No time inserter in use then.
