    I observed a flasher that I thought to be a geosync flasher at
    first, except it was not in the Clarke belt.  
    It began flashing at 03:13:49 UTC, 31 May at RA 14deg 15min
    01.6 sec, Dec +17deg 15min 40 sec - about 1.5 deg below
    Arcturus (az 196.25, el 67.4).  Flashes were about 8 seconds
    apart and were typically +4 to +5.5 with some secondary
    flashes.  I timed the flashes until 03:24 UTC.
    Any ideas?  I am will to accept "weather baloon",
    "hallucination", etc.
