    The sky got clear enough, for me to observe Intelsat 1R ( 26608 ) give it's flar show.
    This year, the time it appear's brightest is different, then in the past when I observed it. Only one flare seen also. 
    Cosmos 923 ( 10120 ) just happen to pass by, while observing.
    Looks like that's all I going to see tonight, cloudy skies agin.
    To many cloudy nights, when I am off this year. Glad I have a tracking system, so I find out when no longer used geo sat's flash, on nights the sky is clear and I am at work. Just capture the video, and play it back when I get home in the morning.
