I observed Tiros N tonight just a flashing its way across the sky.  I was
using 10x50 binoculars.  My wife couldn't see it with the naked eye.

I picked it up as it sailed through Cassiopia at 0036:30Z and followed it
with binos until 0039Z.  I timed the flash rate at 3 to 5 seconds.  Most of
the time it was three, but several times it waited until five.

My position is 29.267 N x 81.060 W
