    Hi folks:
    
          This morning while reviewing skypatol captured video frames (5
    min/frame)  I found a  'regular- spaced' dots going through at least for
    two frames that hinted a possibility of a flashing sat.
    
           I reviewed the video just to make sure this is the work of a bird
    (unlikely)  that somehow manage a linear trajectory through two frames..
    From the video play back this object is indeed a satellite .  It was
    slow moving going flashing  cycle of ~ 9 seconds and of mag +1 or
    brighter(?).
    
           Skymap plot revealed the best possible candidate to be UFO 2 rl
    around the time of closest approach to Rho Puppis going towards Pyx.
    
           My question is does UFO 2 rl flashes?  Thnx.
