    My sincere thanks to Russell Eberst, who identified it as USA 161.
    Klaas Jobse sent me a photograph of his all sky camera from the same night ,
    showing this same satellite too, flaring conspicuously just below Ursa
    minor, with a second less bright flare following. It was made from
    Oostkapelle which is some 145 km southwest of Koen Miskotte's position.
