Observed three flashes of Starshine 3 a few minutes after midnight this
morning 4th June (local).

These were tracked with an LX-200 and recorded on video using a mono CCTV
camera. Exact timings:-

1st flash	Duration  1.1 seconds  @ 23:02:56  3-Jun-02 UTC

2nd flash duration 0.8 sec   116 seconds later

3rd flash duration 1.4 secs  53 seconds later

Magnitude estimates to follow after further analysis of the tape but I would
guess at around mag 0
