    Gals 2 ( 23717 ) flared to the mag 7 range again. Brighest around 6:04 UTC, give are take since
    the brightest part of the flare last's a few minutes. Again easy to see in my 10*50 binoculars,
    which is mounted it on a tripod.
    
    Again Observed Thuraya 1 ( 26578 ) slowly change brightness.  Not sure what time, deleted the
    video. A very slow flashing geo sat, which I enjoy observing.
