Hi,

On 08 NOV 2015, I photographed a flashing UNID that turned out to be quasi geostationary Canyon 6 , 1975-055-A, 
The flashing period was 65-70 seconds.

This identification is only tentative because the satellite was 12 minutes ahead of Calsky ephemeris, that was a quite old one "Age Elements: 198.7 days (Orbit from amateur sources)".

Object observed from site at :  44.57° N ; 6.68° E ; 1850m a.s.l.
