Could be tumbling and spiking in brightness due to some reflective surface?

It's a high satellite based on the fact that it is still illuminated several hours after sunset.

I agree with Jim, it appears that the sat was quite dim in general (but you can see the solid streak) and then really quickly spikes in brightness.

Very neat capture Bob.

Yeah it's tumbling. I have a few videos that show them doing that.
