    And the same results could have been obtained with a simple query at SatFlare, 
    searching for any objects within a few degrees from the stated coordinates:

    >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.
