    I have been trying to identify which satellite made a bright blue flash over
    me on Tuesday evening (Wednesday GMT). It is interesting to me because it
    was the most blue colored flash I have ever seen.
    It was about -1 mag and looked like an iridium flare by it's duration and
    light curve and I could not see it after the flare, naked eye.
    I am at 47.7N, 122.7W
    It was travelling south to north through Cassiopea, Az 45 alt 50
    it was approx 5:15UT Sept 13, No watch either... duuhhh
    I can't find an iridium that matches it.
