    It's good that you report your times in UT, but so there's
    no confusion it's also good to include "UT" with your times.
    In this case, the UT can be assumed since at 08:37 local, you
    wouldn't be able to see a 4th magnitude satellite.

    The satellite you saw would have been flashing (if you followed
    it long enough), as this was Iridium 27 (#24947).

    Cosmos 1063 (#11155).  I can send you SkyMap .CFG files showing
    each of these cases if you like.  --Rob
