    Wow, what an evening!!! Just observed IGS 1B (03-009B) flaring brilliantly to 
    mag. -5 (yes, minus five!) in the northeast!!!
    This was at about 21:06:20 UTC.
    Never seen that before with IGS 1B! I was quite taken aback by it - I was in the 
    proces of moving my tripod to another spot after a first shot when I saw it 
    flaring and my jaw dropped. Didn't get the chance to aim and trigger the camera
