    Thanks @Bjorn @George @YoungFeels like en-lighted ! So many upcoming passes of IRAS coming my way uptill Feb 7, as said by Heavens-above.com. Hope some photons fall my way too. Will do naked eye observation and not through 12x50 binos, they are too shaky. Bjorn that attachment was scary, so many of them in that region !! Fengyun 1C DEB appears in 4 places though. Globestar also passed between Rastaban and Etamin but angle is too steep. Enjoyed.

    On 25th January morning I saw 3 flashes at 6:13AM (local time) between Rastaban and Etamin of constellation Draco. Movement of the object was from Hercules to Cephus.These flashes were prety bright and about the  magnitude of Vega. Object was slowly moving but disappeared completely after 3 flashes.Want to know which object was this.
