Can somebody identify, I had better get some sleep!
Last night I photographed and videotaped a flare from a satellite that
reached mag -4 taking 10 seconds.  It was pretty well due south from
Bugaldie at about 50 deg elevation and moving to the NE.  The time of the
flare was 16:34:43 to 16:34:53 UT
Should add I failed to identify it from the latest Molczan.tle and
Iridium.tle in Mike McCants FTP area.
