Hi Michael,

the only object I found that matches trajectory and speed, at the reported 
time, appears to be
THORAD AGENA D DEB (Norad 4818). However, I don't know if this debris can 
become as bright as mag. -2. We don't have any report about this object.

You can check its trajectory using this link:
