    While I was scanning the sky, I had a bright flash occur.
    So I followed the sat, and it flashed fainter at least twice, before tree's got in the way. I didn't bother to id it, at the time. I just wanted to continue scanning the sky, looking for anything else passing by, to id later also.
    Problem I seem to have so far, is no leo I get being in the area at the time, and takes the path seen.
    When I first spotted the sat, as it gave a bright flash, there was another sat nearby, which was 32026, which was heading south.

    So anything there, that was going in a west to east direction, incase I am missing something.
