    Last night FSW-3 4 (28776, 05-27A) did a truly spectacular 
    pass over here at an orbital height of just over 160 km and 
    flashing very brightly (-2?) about every 2.5 seconds with a 
    pattern of flash-miss-flash-flash (i.e., 1.25, .63, .62), or 
    flash-flash-miss-flash (.63, .62, 1.25).  
    
    Before I got clouded out, at least two geosats flared to 1x5 
    (one-power, or "naked-eye") visibility.  IDs maybe later.
