    At 2:08 utc ( June 23 ) Intelsat 1R ( 26608 ) looks to be mag 5 are brighter.
    Seems brighter then last time, I observed it.
    I had seen it get bright, then was the fainter next time, now it sure looks brighter again.
    This one will be oh so cool flashing geo sat, when they retire it, and send it to thw graveyard, when ever that happens. This is my personally option, so pay no attention to me.
