    Nice flash you observed from it. I call it a flash, because the sat is no operational and so it's attitude is not under control. A flare would be from a operational sat.
     
    That's my take.

    Someone I know called me the above, since I observe them satellites alot.. 
    I like it, so I'll use it.
