    Using an elset from 20070818, no doubt it is the Soviet Glonass 
    satellite Cosmos 1593 #15259 84-095 A at 19500 km range.
    
    If other observers find/found it flashing again, we might get
    valid rotation axis and panel orientation to predict flashes.
    (Note the flash period appears to be quite long)
