    Only one position for this pass because the object flared to mag -8 or brighter!!!
    I have seen plenty of bright flarings from it in past but this bets the cake
    Looked like an iridium flare, [ no iridiums passing by the position BTW]
    but colour was a slight bluish white. lasted somewhat longer than an iridium
    flare as well. This was about a minute before the time given in the observation.
