    Thanks to Björn Gimle's help on when to look, I was able to 
    observe Intelsat 512 (85-087A, 16101), a flashing geosynch 
    fairly similar to Superbird A.  This was from outside my 
    apartment -- not a good observing site.  I think that the 
    brightest flashes might have been +3, but I was using my 
    binoculars, the Moon was bright, and the nearby lights were 
    shining.  PPAS report:
    
    85- 87 A 02-07-19 05:51:42.5 EC  331.9 0.3  15 22.12  +3.5->inv
    
    It flashes something like 12 minutes or so later each night.
