Hi See-Saters

What is 23133 UHF F/O 3r ?

I think I just saw it while I was looking at Canopus at 07h28 local time. It
was magnitude 1 but when going Est it flared to mag -1 at about an altitude
of about 30 degrees

Apart from Iridiums (or Iridii ?), STS, Mir and HST, this is the brightest
satellite I have even seen.
