    Me and the neirbour where out watching satellite, when I happened to look towars ursa major. I
    thought that star doesn't belong there. He also saw it after I meantioned it.
    
    It was slow moving, and as bright as the bowl stars.
    
    I ran a check, and the only thing in the area that matches in DMSP F15.

    Time was between 10:09 and 10:10 pm EDT (Aug 15 ), it lasted as long as a iridium flare.
