In one of the images of last night there was a weird track in one of
the corners.
At first I thought it was an aircraft. I see a lot of them being under
one of the
approach routes to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.
The basic pattern was a regular brighting with an invisible minimum. But there
were also double bright flashes on both sides of the basic track;
hence the idea of
an aircraft. They were at every other regular flash.

I measured the track and got:
93307 15 620A   4172 G 20150430005734220 17 25 1901149+683695 37 S
93307 15 620A   4172 G 20150430005732139 17 25 1853508+665472 37 S
93307 15 620A   4172 G 20150430005730524 17 25 1848227+653325 37 S

Running Satfit gives as the best candidate with the lowest residuals:
29393   -1.326    0.015    0.006 93307    4.019

I´ve seen 29393 before, but not with such a flash pattern.

So the correct report is:
29393 06 037A   4172 G 20150430005734220 17 25 1901149+683695 37 F
29393 06 037A   4172 G 20150430005732139 17 25 1853508+665472 37 F
29393 06 037A   4172 G 20150430005730524 17 25 1848227+653325 37 F
