On 05-30-1997 at 22:05 UT
several (over 20 in different places) observers
of the region of Bordeaux Lat. +44d50m Lon. near zero
saw a satellite near the zenith MOVING FROM EAST TO WEST
3 sec VERY BRIGHT flash then 7 sec not visible and so on.
They say that during the flashes it was MUCH BRIGHTER than MIR.
What could it be?


My pleasure, avec plaisir,  Alphonse
