    While following a sat, I noticed a flash and so stopped. Shortly later another flash occured. At first, I thought it was a flashing geo, until I could see the flashes were getting higher in the sky, over such a short amount of time. I followed the sat for a few minutes, until the flashes got fainter.

    FLTSATCOM 3 ( 11669 ) observed flashing around 1:33 utc ( Mar 18 ), it takes under 2 minutes between flashes. Since the sat will be visible on astronomy day ( April 20 ) I'll show it to people, if it flashes during the time, the public observing session is occuring
