    While playback the captured video, to again observe the slow flashes of THURAYA 1, I noticed
    another satellite flared for a few seconds. No match to anything in the catalog, and classfd stuff
    so far. 
    
    The unknown, passed very close to a star located at
    
    RA (J2000.0): 01 23 50.84
    declination -05 49 06.8
    
    At 7:04:29 UTC ( Sept 3 ) It was around the same magnitude as that star.
