My wife and I were outside watching the April 3, 8.20pm, 82 deg, super bright pass of ISS here in Orange County, Cal.  After it had passed overhead, and was moving quickly away from us to the N/E, my wife and I simultaneously saw a very small, very brief, flash of white light just to the right of ISS. Although difficult to tell, it appeared to be close to the station, and not somewhere between the ISS and us.
Since then we have both wondered what we might have seen.
Anyone else seen this before?  (thanks for the indulging this slightly off topic post)
