    Another one to add to my list
    
    Skynet 4A ( 20401 ) is flashing every approx 12 minutes.
    
    I observed bright flashes at the following times.
    
    May 30 ( UTC )
    
    7:31:05
    7:43:09
    7:55:18
    
    Hotbird 1 ( 23537 ) seems to flash every approx 9 minutes. 
    
    May 30 ( UTC )
    
    4:44:20
    4:53:10
    
    Gsat 1 ( 26745 )
    
    May 30 ( UTC )
    
    5:09:29
    5:27:34
    
    Now I have a better idea, of the approx period of bright flashes. Such a long wait between them. 
    
    The flash period is approx, hard to determine it, with the geo sat's that slowly flash, ie flash
    last a few seconds.
    
    The flashes seemed to be the the Magnitude 9 range, for the above geo sat's.
