    Didn't even notice it last night, but I had a oko satellite pass by, while keeping an eye on
    Satcom C1. I only noticed it this morning, when playing back the video.
    The oko satellite was Cosmos 1317 ( 12933 ) 
    At 1:48:28 UTC, it gave a bright flashes, then roughly 2 seconds later another bright flash. Then
    a short time laster, it gave a faint flash, followed by a bright flash.
    Sat was around
    12 h 35 m R.A
    -2 deg 58 min Dec
    So a good one, for me to observe again.
