Hi, While outdoors doing Milky Way naked eye observing under very clear southern AZ skies, I observed the following mystery 'flare' in Cygnus at about 2150 MST 6-21-09 (0450 UT on Monday 6-22-09). The object brightened to about mag. -3 for about 8 to 10 seconds, then faded beyond naked eye visibility. I estimated it's azimuth at about 70 degrees and its altitude at about 30 degrees, maybe a little less. That would place it in the region of where the star 'eta Cygni' is. I referenced the Iridium Flare section of the heavens-above site for current and previous 48 hour flares, but nothing corresponded to my sighting, so I am wondering if anyone else on the list observed it or maybe was imaging that area of the sky around that time. I did not see it repeat. Thanks & Clear Skies, Doug Snyder Palominas, AZ -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list.
