New flares?

I have heard Iridium flares are no longer occurring, but three times
recently I have seen something similar to them.  Instead of seeing the
satellite dimly tracking into the flare, there was no visible satellite
until the sudden brightening occurred; and the brightening was very
brief, as in a second or so.  The Heavens Above Live Sky Chart showed no
satellites near the event.   Does anyone know what these are?
