    I captured an unidentified flash on my all-sky camera last night at 
    January 1, 2010,  3:11:37 am MST local time. ( This is 1011:37 UT ).
    It looks like a sat flash and I am wondering if there is a chance that 
    it might have been a Moon illuminated sat flash? 
    I posted a short movie of the flash in two formats:

    .wmv 2.4 MB   :  http://www.heliotown.com/UNID20100101_1011utAshcraft.wmv
    Any help identifying this little mystery is appreciated.
