    Last weekend I successfully observed Telstar 401 and saw a couple of flashes
    as bright as +1 or +2 between 0730 and 0820UT. I video taped other flashes
    including a precursor flash which was always fainter, but not always
    occurring. The precursor flash appeared about 5 seconds before the main
    flash. The interval between the main flashes was on the order of 166 seconds
    or so, but I did not time it accurately.
