    I hit the send button, by mistake, so what I really meant to send.
    Finally got around, to checking the video captured the other night.
    I wanted to find out, when THURAYA 1 ( 26578 ) would flash brightly.
    Well I got my answer, from roughly 9:27 to 9:40 UTC ( Sept 25 )  
    2 nice flashes from it.
    I noticed fainter flash's in between.
    It would take roughly 4 minutes, to give that double set of flashes.
    I am happy to see, it takes less time to give a flash, then back in June 2007.
