    	About 30 minutes ago I saw this zoom by.  It was varying in the mag
    +2..+3 range with one flash to +0.  It passed into shadow a little after
    culmination.  About 15 sec after it vanished from view I witnessed what
    obviously was an Iridium flare.  I quickly determined it was Iridium 77.
    From this I think the Soyuz rocket was a little early with respect to the
    elset below
