    Observing from Paignton,UK,lat.50.43N long.03.55W on evening of 21st 
    May,whilst looking for R Hya,at 23:28-23:30 BST(22:28-22:30 UST) I saw an 
    object of approximate mag.3.0 falling rapidly to the Southern horizon.At 
    about alt.30deg it reversed direction and began heading Northwards.At about 
    alt.70deg az.SW it flared to at least mag.-1 and continued Northwards.
    Did anyone else see this,and what was it?
