    Well I know what happened, I was using a different location in heavens above. I forgot to change
    back to my location, after checking passes for the other location.
    
    So far nothing else, except USA 129 matched the awesome flare we observed. So I have recorded it,
    as a flare from USA 129. I told my neirbour, the sat looked to be in a polar are sun sync type
    orbit, and, could be a spy sat. Well my hunch was right.
