    I observed it flashing for over 20 minutes, then went to observe other stuff. The sky was hazy, so not much was seen.
    
    Before observing Ekran 12, I had observed ITALSAT 2 ( 24208 ) give a flash every 5 to 6 minutes. I deleted the video, so can't see what the real time was, but that 5 to 6 minutes should be close I beleive. Flash's were not as nice as what Ekran 12 gave.
