    At a party last night we saw a flare, and can't find what it might be
    anywhere:
    
    Time of observation: 21:30 BST (20:30 GMT)
    Location: 52.4490° N, 1.8750° W
    
    Track was approx 85 degrees altitude moving from ESE (~250 degrees azi)
    to WNW (~70 degrees).
    
    I saw the object as it started to fade and this lasted for about 6
    seconds, from approx mag -2 until it disappeared. It flared just like an
    Iridium.
    
    Any ideas? It'll help me explain things to my confused friends!!
    
    Thanks
    
    Mark.
