    2003-03-09.
    I just went out to check whether a geostationary satellite would be bright
    enough
    to be found by me using 7 x 50 binoculars.
    Accidentally I saw mag. +5 flashes with an FP of almost exactly 1 second
    (estimated).
    The time was 22:52 UT and the object was at about RA 10h36m dec -8 as seen
    from
    my regular observation location. The flashes disappeared after I saw five or
    so
    flashes.
    
    Is this the same object?
