Hi all,
In the southern Alps I photographed a flashing UNID satellite on 6 consecutive photos taken on 25 DEC 2015 at 18h08m UTC.
The photometric period was of 3.55s.


No identification can be found using Heavensat and TLE + Classified + Integrated Tles .
Alain Grycan (Toulouse) calculated an altitude of about 2600-2650 km and the following TLE :


1 00000U          15359.75564815 0.00000073  00000-0  50000-4 0    06
2 00000  60.0122 219.1093 0009349 270.6709 237.6288 10.08557367    02



Due to the short arc used, they are only approximative.


More info and pictures are given at :

I would be very grateful to whoever attempting to identify this very nice object.
