    Hi folks:
     
      Chanced upon HST while preparing for 2 morrow Suitsat high pass. Did 
    not  know it was HST ( I dont expect ISS) when i spotted the bright sat 
    moving pass below Orion and I watched it sailed across Canis Major and 
    viola - it outputted an  iridium-like flash - mag -4/-5...and continued 
    its journey eastwards. So can  the flash from the telescope optics?
    
      A quick visit  to HA confirmed the identity.
