    On the evening of 16Apr09 at 0837UT I observed an Iridium-like flare
    from an object moving from north to south just east of Procyon. The
    flare was approximately magnitude -3. Checking later on CalSky revealed
    the object to correspond to Spot 1 1986-019A. The object was only
    visible to the unaided eye while flaring.
