 Observed a near zenith pass of UARS tonight (Nov 30 2140 UT). It was mag
 1-2 until at zenith then suddenly flashed to mag -2 or possibly -3. The
 brightening peaked and declined evenly over approx 4 seconds. Anyone else
 observe similar UARS activity? Have seen 4-5 passes of UARS and never seen
 this flashing.
