    While observing the UFO F6 satellite, I had a bright flash occur nearby.
    
    It turned out to be Satcom C5 ( 13631 ), which had failed in geo orbit, from what I understand. 
     
    One of the bright flashes, was around 6:09:35 utc ( Oct 19 )
    
    It takes a few minutes, between flashes, most which appeared faint.
    
    Brad had reported a flash from it, back in 2007.

    Kazsat 1 ( 29230 ) was flashing brightly at around 9:59 utc. The clouds arrived and wrecked the view.
