GEO Flasher?

While waiting for Starshine #25769 99030B to make a pass, i noted a flash
what i thought was it towards the SSE, Az 160 deg El 25-30 deg, at 01:52:11
27 Oct UTC. It was in the area and time that Starshine was to pass so i
figured that was it. A few seconds later i noted another flash but in the
same spot, then another. I came up with a rough timing of 11 seconds between
the 10 or so flashes that i saw, all at 1x, the brightest being a mag 1.
While looking with my 10x50s more flashes were seen and as a bonus, USA 102
#23031 94017 (which i wanted to see also) crossed the FOV. I do not know if
this flasher was a GEO sat or not as it had moved slightly towards the East
during my observations.
