    I would say start looking at 6:30 UTC, and keep an eye on it, and if all
    goes to plan, you see it.
    Jeff Umbarger send me a email, saying he observed a bright geo, which I told
    him was Galaxy 11. Milstar 6 which is near Galaxy 11, also flares up, but
    it's flares last way longer and isn't as bright, I find.
    There should hopefully be a flare, from the other surface. I plan to look at
    the approx time, I fiqure it should occur which is 1 hour earlier, so around
    5:50 UTC give are take a few minutes. Start looking early. 
    Cloudy tonight, so observing by me, to see.
