    Oh ya!
    At 4:33:54 I observe another flash, to confirm that it's Galaxy 3R flashing. I like to be sure.
    So the sat was around 
    17 h 27 m R.A
    -6 deg 40 min Dec
    The flash was around mag 7, again close to a star, I like that.
    I will analze the video later, to see what's the sat's flash period.
    Oh so happy. This makes the earliest I have seen a flashing geo sat, after it's was retired from
    service. Not bad for not really trying. Heck I wasn't even looking for it. Just another case where
    I am looking for something else, and instead see something unplanned for.
