    I decided to check on possible flashing molniya's satellite's. I did a scan to see which would
    make good passes, and decided to observe molniya 1-62
    
    So I set up, and waited.
    
    And not before to long, a faint flash was detected. Then a short time latter another one!
    
    My video system comes in handy again.
    
    Molniya 1-62 produces a flash every approx 11 seconds. 
    
    At 6:32:29.782 UTC (June 5 )one of the flashes seemed to be mag +3.8.
    
    Video to appear latter, of it's flashes.
