    I had aimed at TURKSAT 1B ( 23200 ), to check up on it, but I  was rewarded with flashing from
    GOES 9 ( 23581 )
    
    I observed it between 1:50 to 2:00 UTC ( Sept 30 ), when I went to observe something else.
    
    One of the flashes was in the area around 
    
    23 h 14 m R.A
    -10 deg 40 min Dec
    
    GOES 9 gave a flash every approx 130 seconds, the flashes where mag 8 are brighter.

    I also observed that, oh so nice flashing Zenit 2 R/B ( SL-16 R/B )

    It's slowed down a small amount, since I observed it in July
