    Hello everybody,
         While observing at 0908UT on 30Jul08 from 32.87S 151.7E I observed
    a flash just north of zeta Ophiucus. Using binoculars I was able to see
    a satellite moving eastward and two subsequent flashes. The flashes were
    about magnitude 4 with a constant period in the order of 5 seconds
    (untimed). The satellite itself was approximately magnitude 6. Later
    reference to H-A and CalSky revealed no corresponding object down to
    magnitude 8.any assistance in identifying this object would be
    appreciated.
