    >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
