    Caught some bright flashes from Insat 2A ( 22027 ). Seems to only flash brightly for a short time.

    While checking on SkyTerra 1, which I might have seen using the wide feild observing setup, I had a flashing peice of delta rocket come by.
    It was 10762, and the flashes were faint, between 8 to 9th mag.
    Yesterday, I had observed a flashing globalstar satellite, which was 
    globalstar 3 ( 25165 ) from what I remember. I didn't keep a note anywhere.
