    I was keeping an eye on apple, looking for flashing, when I noticed MOLNIYA 1-80 ( 28188 ) was
    passing by. So I aimed my video camera at it, and wow nice flare. So it's not flashing.
    At 4:08:02 UTC ( June 16  ) It was in the range of Mag 4 to 5, I would estimate.
    At the time it was over 7300 km away, not bad:)
    At the time it, was around 
    15 h 37 m R.A
    -19 deg 41 min Dec 
    Got it on video, for uploading to my site later.
