    While looking for the Resurs 01 R/B pass here in Oman, I witnessed a
    flashing satellite about 5 degrees to the right of Orions Belt. Was this
    Resurs or some other sat. My location is Ghala, Oman about 10 miles east of
    Muscat and 5 miles inland 23.19.12N  58.13.12E and the sighting was about
    19:34 local time. 15:34 GMT. It was a red colour to the naked eye  but was
    not visible other than that. The flashes were intermittent and somewhere
    around 3 to 5 seconds apart. About four were witnessed and then it
    disappeared. Not sure of the direction as they all seemed to occur in the
    same area.
