    Amazed that I could see M17 from light polluted NYC
    with my Obie 15x70's, I lingered there a while and
    suddenly saw a flashing geo sync at about 1:30 (6:30
    UT) this morning.  It had a flash period of about 22 -
    23 seconds.
    
    RA 18h 21m
    Dec -16deg 43'
    
    Flashed consistenly at about 22 seconds and was
    consistently bright.  
    Seemed to be stationary.  My location is 40.58N
    -74.16W.
