    As i was looking up at the clear skies, i noticed a short but noticable
    bright flash, est mag -4 low to the East, Az approx 80 deg El 12-15 deg at
    04:40:25 +/- 3 sec 30 Jul UTC. I suspected an Iridium tumbler and i found
    out that Iridium 48 tum #25107 97082D was just coming out of shadow at that
    time and in that area.
