    Ah....looked again at Heavensat after updating elements...I think I found it as an Atlas Centaur R/B #10025 at a distance of 37235km....Could someone verify this as I don't use Heavensat often enough to know if I am correct?

    last night while imaging asteroids, I came across a satellite tumbling across my FOV. I took a series of images as it tumbled with a rate of approx. one flash per second or so.  I tried to find it in Heavensat with no luck. The date/time was 7/22/2012  01:38:48 UTC.  At that time the location was RA=18 00 27, DEC=+08 27 05.  
    Wonder if someone could ID it for me...
