    Hi Rick,
    
    This looks to be NAVSTAR 39 [24320/96056A], which you saw just before it 
    went into eclipse at 7:05UT. This is a GPS satellite and was about 21800 
    km distant at the time.
    
    It is known to flash; Marco Langbroek observed this satellite earlier 
    this year:

        Cees
