JERS 1 #21867 92007A flared to mag 0 on it's second flare after passing
Deneb and just below (East) Alderamin. The first flare was a mag 3, no exact
timings were made but 05:17:54 22 Jul UTC was it's peak pass time at Az 70
deg El 61 deg.  

I watched Iridium 48 #25107 97082D flash as it tumbled along, when it passed
thru a bit of Aurora haze, there was a -3 flash and due to the haze, it was
a horizontal elongated flash about 3-4 degrees long. An interesting sight.
