    Hi everyone,
    I just received this message and I cannot think what this person saw - it
    doesn't seem to fit with Mir, ISS or HST. Could anyone help him please?
    Thanks Chris

    Hi Chris:
    Yesterday 15/may/2000, I was waiting to see the pass of Iridium 20 satellite
    at 19:39:29 (Predictions of your Website, beautiful).
    However, at 19:34:10 (time via GPS, -6 GMT), pass a objet uknow and Mag. -5,
    Alt. 18 degrees, Azimuth 120 degrees with direction to S-E. The intensity of
    the flare long was 1 minute. Much more time that  a iridium satellite.
    Just middle degree below of the moon.
    Would you like tell me what kind of objet was this?
    I think that was a MIR, HST or ISS, but I dont know....
    My position is (via GPS):
    19.4766 Lat-N
    99.1280 Long-W
    2349 Meters on sea level.
    Mexico city
