Cosmos 1602 flare?

Date: Mon Sep 03 2001 - 07:49:07 EDT

     Has anyone observed a flare from 15331 (Cosmos 1602) before?
     Whilst walking the dogs last night (2/9) around 20:28UT I observed a 
     bright flare low (10 deg) in the North, which I assumed to be an 
     Iridium.  Checking Heavens Above however shows no Iridium flare at the 
     time and location observed, but I get Cosmos 1602 in the right place 
     at the right time, moving in the right direction.  I missed the start 
     of the flare, but of what I saw it lasted 3 seconds and reached mag -2 
     at least.  I didn't observe the sat after the flare.
