Hi Michael,

If I am not wrong, according to the object's direction, it could have been: 
USA 32 (19460) or SL-16 DEB (39848).

You can check the position and direction of both these objects using this 
link:

(don't break the link). 

From the photo it should be easy to identify the right one, though I would
bet on USA 32. We have 6 flash reports in our DB, between mag. 5 and mag. 3:

Simone
