    There is a report on a Belgian astronomy mailing list of an observation
    of Raduga 33, with permission of the observer, I'd like to report his observation
    Bram Gekiere, while observing Mars, saw 13 flashes, half a minute apart.
    First flashes were as bright as Vega, last were less bright
    This occured around Sunday, 24 Aug 2003, 21:10 U.T.
    He was observing in the south part of West-Flanders (Belgium)
    He says the satellite just moved about 10 degrees during these 13 flashes.
    maybe this observation helps to predict when these bright flashes occur
