    I observed LES 8 ( 08746 ) for over 1 hour this morning.
    
    I notice it it had strange flashes. I fiqured it was giving fast double flashes.
    So I played back video in slow motion, which allowed me to confirm it gives double flashes. 
    
    Here's a video showing a flash at 5:35:09 UTC ( Sept 6 ).
