    At 06:01:35 UT on 22 June 2000 I observed a "possible"
    lunar iridium flare from #25040.  It exhibited the same
    fluctuation in brightness as the third one I saw recently.
    
    The magnitude was in the 9.0 - 9.5 range.
    
    The question on if it was a true lunar flare is that I observed
    it about two seconds prior to shadow entry.  So could the satellite
    be that bright that close to the umbra without lunar reflection?
