    Oh I can say, is oh so nice:)
    
    While observing Insat 2B for flashing, another slow moving flashing object came by!
    
    I ran an ID, and have a match with so far Cosmos 2342 ( 24800 ).
    
    Flashing under 5 seconds.
    
    Flash where Mag 10 are brighter, as a estimate. I could easily see them.
    
    I wasn't using my time inserter, as wasn't planning on observing. It looked like it would be
    cloudy tonight, but the skies got clear after midnight:)
    
    Cosmos 2342 is a US-KS (Oko).

    Never know what I discover, while observing something else.
    
    Good phase angle, to cause a nice show.
