Firat Barlas reported an unknown flasher with a period of 28 s:

The following object appears to be a good match:

Iridium 44 tum   4.0  1.8  0.0  6.4 d 5.68
1 25078U 97077B   02121.63649931  .00000586  00000-0  19600-3 0  4453
2 25078  86.3995 170.3146 0003880  41.6379 318.5111 14.35794569230216

The flash period reported by Firat is close to my extrapolation of 
periods reported over the past several years.
