    tonight at 23 JUL 03:04:50 UTC I was watching a pass of chicago IL USA of 
    Lacrosse 3. I caught an object flaring brightly which my only resource,  HA, 
    doesn't have listed.  the object crossed an imaginary line between 
    kornephoros (beta herc) and gamma herc at 03:04:50 UTC plus or minus 5 
    seconds.  it was heading toward mizar in ursa major.  it passed about midway 
    between those two stars in herc., brightened to nearly 2 magnitude,  I 
    estimated, then faded completely from view within 12 seconds.  I'm curious 
    as to what its ID might be.
    
    clear skies!
