Reports Report 2363c (Event 2363-2018)

Name Bill B
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks There was a satellite transiting within 25 minutes of me seeing the flare, going from High to low, and slight left to right, movign away -I can't remember if it was before or after but probably before. Pretty faint, started at about 70 degree elevation, at around 200-210 degrees and I lost it around 45 degree elevation 220 degrees I think. The track was still left of Jupiter when I lost it, I think.

Remarks I was using SkyView Lite app on my iphone, had been outside in complete darkness for an hour, facing southerly from 180 degrees to about 220 degrees looking at the sky over my tree line . From RI this was Above Constellation Scorpius and slightly left of Jupiter. This appeared to my eye like a celestial body having a great flare in brightness, but with no apparent movement to my eye. ( I have seen fireballs with movement several times in the past). The "Flare" had definite increase and decrease in brightness in between 2 to 5 seconds long, but then there was no star there in that same spot after 5 seconds!
