A nice and predicted Lacrosse 3 flare

Philip Masding predicted a flare of Lacrosse 3 (25017, 97-064A) for my site for this night (jul13-14), 00:22:22 UTC.

I watched Lacrosse slowly flare to mag. 0 at 00:22:27 +/- 1s UTC. So his prediction was correct by an error of only 5 seconds!

Below is the image I shot of the flare (click image for larger size). Earlierr this night I saw USA 161 briefly flare too.
