    I observed Okean-O r #25861 99039B again and was able to get a better flash
    count, although still just a mental count, i came up with 1.5 sec. Though it
    was low in the NE, it was barely visible at 1x under the moonlit sky. 
    While watching Cosmos 2369 r #26070 00006B rise up in the NW it had a
    definate blinking to it, too fast to time and when it reached it's
    culmination, the 'blink' was barely noticable. It was the same when it began
    it's descent, steady in magnitude but at times a blink was seen. 
    I also had a dual flare, both as predicted, Iridium 19 #24965U 97056A at -6
    was at 03:07:53 UTC and Iridium 51 ? #25262U 98018A at -7 was at 03:08:51.
    Both were in the same spot in the sky, Az 012 deg El 26 deg.
