The RAE list says that 1969 13A was Tactical Comsat1.
Can other list members suggest how a upper stage has a large flat( 1-2square metres)
surface to give such an obvious flash? it can hardly have solar panels!
Have other list members come across this object before?
To correct myself, it was seen by observers gathered for the South Pacific
Star party.
