    Another one to add to my list.
    
    Gsat 1 ( 26745 ) is slowly flashing.
    
    I have the following times for when I observed a flash, lasting a few seconds.

    7:47:13
    7:50:09
    7:54:21
    7:57:03
    8:01:33
    
    I plan on observing it again tonight, to get more data.
    
    PPAS report using 3 of the flashes, that seemed to match in time, ie 4 min 12 second between them.

    This sat only has one solar panel on it.
