    This morning the sky got somewhat clear, but still very hazy for a short time, so I setup and went to observe. I was scanning the sky, to move to a bright star to use in the mount alignment, when I noticed a flash. So I stopped, and a short time later another flash. I aligned the mount, and went looking for the right area of sky, which I was able to find. I then id the flashing sat.

    It gives another flash a short time later, which was fainter.
