    On 24 juillet 2012 at 23h00m40s UTC I took a 10-sec duration pose that showed close to the star mu Lyr  a nice red flare from an unidentified satellite.
    That's probably another 'unid' since it wasn't identified using Calsky and Heavensat.
    No angular velocity can be derived, however due to my 'intuition' I suppose it might be more or less in the range 0.1-0.15 °/s . The altitude might be of the order of 3000 km or so.
    The photo can be viewed, together with more information, at :
