Tonight, my son and I were watching the Mir pass.  At approximately
02:19:5? we observed a sharp increase in brightness that lasted about 1
second.  It resumed its normal magnitude just as sharply.  

I have seen Mir on countless occasions and have never seen anything like
this before.

A solar panel glint?
