    I decided to observe galaxy 8 ( 25086 ) last night. This one I had observed with the slooh
    telescope.

    I could see a slow flash from it, every 14 minutes.
    
    After I would see the slow flash, a short time later, there was 2 faster flashes, ie shorter
    duration.
    
    Slow flashes observed at 
    
    6:04, 6:14 and 6:18 UTC ( Sept 10 )
    
    There was 16 seconds between the 2 set's of faster flashes. The first of the faster flash, occured
    within 1 minute of the slow flash.
    
    The flash's were faint, at the time I observed it.
