    I had another 1x pass of Iridium 85 tum #25529 98066C. As i was getting
    ready i noticed it rising in the South not expecting any flashes when there
    was a mag 1 flash at 02:25:00 6 Oct UTC +/- 5 sec. I wasn't ready for it so
    that's why the large time +/- variance. It continued to be visible at 1x,
    there was a brief glint just before it reached an Az of 90 deg but no time
    was recorded. Then as it passed to the West of Cassiopeia, about 2 - 3 deg
    (West) from the middle star in the W of Cassiopeia (sorry i don't know the
    name of that one), it flashed to a -2 at 02:26:25 +/- 3 sec.
    
    Here is the pass prediction for it: (edited)
