    Observed Iridium 911 flashing with no discernable rhythm at 0908 UTC.
    Observed prolonged flare from Cosmos 2263. Initially Iridium-like, it
    rose from below x1 visibility to approx -4 at mid-North Eastern altitude
    and maintained brightness to at least 20 degrees (at which point it
    became obscured). First observed at 0912UTC.
