The flare-brightness of this satellite was about 150,000 times the normal
brightness. This result is based on the information reported by Alexandre
in his message here and additional data that he kindly supplied to me. I
calculated the Sun-Satellite-Observer geometry for this event and evaluated
the expected brightness using two models of Starlink magnitudes.
