    Here's what the flare looked like, using my lens giving me a wide feild.
    Flare was from Iridium 26.
    Don't know how wide the feild of view was, and don't care.
    It was Skynet 4A ( 20401 ) that I observed flashing.
    I also spotted Gstar 4 ( 20946 ) give 2 flashes, when playing back the video. Both take awhile to give a flash.
    The flashes from both, were magnitude 5 are brighter.
