    The moon, is making seeing flashes from no longer used geo sat's harder.
    At least Galaxy 8 ( 25086 ) is currently easy to see. 
    It takes roughly 16 minutes, to give a bright flash, with a fainter flash in between.
    One bright flash occured at around 5:20 utc ( Sept 3 ) and was mag 6 are brighter.
    Now to look at the time between bright flashes, to see if it's taking more time, are less time, then last time.
