    Just observed 89 degrees NNW-S pass of Nanosail-D and flashing was very obvious. 
    But I observed 2 minutes preceding the actual Nanosail, another flashing object, following the same path. 
    Flashing of this object was even faster and it was dimmer, no way possible to capture it but the orbit and angular
    speed looked the same as Nanosail. I even was confused by the object, and thought the Sail was 2 minutes too early.
    Debris?
