    Saw an excellent flaring satellite last night but cannot id. Best positions
    were:
    
    4h50m +8 1:42:31 UT
    5h25m +7.5 1:43:26 just N Gamma Ori
    5h55m +8 1:44:22 just N of Betelguese
    6h30m +12 1:45:14 then distracted by another UNID - found to be 02024D
    (27433) Feng Yun 1D Deb
    
    Any ideas? It was normally at edge of vision in 10x50s (8 mag) but flashed
    to 5mag or better as follows:
    
    1:40:28
    1:40:51
    1:41:14
    1:41:42
    1:42:08
    1:42:37
    1:43:00
    1:43:53
    1:44:22 (yes - just as it passed N of Betelguese)
    
    Originally caught my attention with a 1X flash near head of Cetus.
