    Hi all,
    In the second half of July, I did a mountain hike through the Dolomites in N-Italy.
    Although I had only limited equipment with me, I did take some night-sky 
    A picture of ENVISAT flaring over the mountains, as well as a picture showing a 
    double Iridium flare (Iridium 63 and 14) and IGS 7A in one 30s picture, can be 
    seen here:
    The ENVISAT flare pattern seems to have become irregular: in a series of 30s 
    images I have images with two maxima, no maxima, and one maximum per 30 seconds.
