    Apologies, corrected report below. It is already hectic at work.
    
    Seen naked eye at 12:35:21 at mag +1, reached a maximum of +0 at 12:35:33. Faded regularly (phase angle) until re-brightening to a second maximum of nearly +1 (compared to Vega) at 12:36:29. Lost at 12:37:09; blazing fast nearly overhead pass. I would not describe any of the activity as flaring. No attempt at other objects due to cirrus.
    
    COSPAR 8336 = TULSA1
