    Several flashes observed low into an 83 degree pass.  No flashes
    observed after the object passed 30 degrees in elevation.  I was not
    able to observe the 2nd half of pass due to trees.  Difficult to judge
    the magnitude due to the speed of the flashes.  Certainly appeared
    brighter than mag 0.
    
    This pass started at about 22:47 local (GMT - 5:00)
