    For the last couple of weeks, every evening that I have 
    been out I have seen a bright flaring geosat at about 
    1:40-45 UTC at about RA 1:00 (at first) to about RA 1:45
    (last night).  The last few evenings it's been visible
    without binoculars, about +3.5 magnitude for a few 
    minutes.  When I have tried to ID it I have not gotten 
    consistent results, so it may be that it was a different 
    one two weeks ago than it was the last few evenings.
