NOTES-

Watched USA 32, but the camera failed to record.. 

Prime target was DMSP F18.. Pretty positive I caught it.. 

I have posted two videos.. One shows FIA Radar 3 and a Southwest Airlines jet up close and personal.. The Second video shows the
NOSS 3-5 pair just before an unknown flasher that I followed.. Heavensat doesn't show anything, but I suspect it is just debris..
It's a nice flasher though.. See the bottom two links on..
