    Last night while trying to observe a LEO, I noticed a flashing satellite in
    Perseus' hat, flashing every 5 sec (Aa) to +6, +7 mag declining until last
    few flashes were 10s apart (secondary flash too dim I suppose), until gone
    (in 12 x 60 binoculars). Position was nearly constant at 2h 58m +52.5,
    drifting somewhat S during the period 0:55:53 until 0:57:12. Molniya 3-52
    (26970,01050A) was nearby but doesn't seem to match. Any ideas?
    No luck with PAS 1-R, did you see it flare last night, Kevin?
    Other positions / PPAS to follow now that jury duty is over.
