Hello,
Last night (Aug. 10), at 20:04 UT I spotted a very strange satellite.
It was mag. 1.5 and moving extremely fast. The object literally jumped
from behind near trees and was moving from  SSW , through culmination
~60deg., to around NNW. It wasn't tumbling. At culmination it was making
20deg.(palm's width) in about 7 seconds. (2.8deg/s)
