Hi All

Below is an observation of an object that I can't identify. It moved at slow
speed tracking right over Delta and then Alpha Horologium. It was invisible
except for flashes to +7 every 5 seconds. I was trying to observe USA 136 at
the time but mucked up and got outside a few minutes too late.
Interestingly, USA 136's plane seems to be quite close in position and
direction to the observation. USA 136 was observed a few days ago and would
have gone by about 10 minutes before this.
