    I was still pointed at Spaceway 3 ( 32018 ) to see if I could detect any flaring, I beleive I could see faint flaring again. It's very hard to tell as it's so faint. I had to work, and with the weather didn't want to place my goto scope outside.
    Playing back the video, Optus B1 ( 22087 ) which last happened to be in the area of spaceway 3 last night, gave a couple of flashes, after which thr clouds wrecked the view for awhile.

    Vortex 2 ( 11558 ) observed flashing around the same time as yesterday.
    While it was flashing, a APT ( 31863 ) passed by.
