Hello.  I observed a beautiful pass of Resurs 1-3r going by Mizar at about
7:16 EST.  After that I was observing Cosmos 1980r as it passed between Leo
and Cancer going south at around 7:26  EST when another object passed by
it, almost intersecting its path.  The object was passing from south to
north and was flashing brilliantly.   It was a the best flasher I've seen
since I started this hobby.  Anyone have an idea what it was?
