    Just an afterthought...........
    
    From all our obs it seems that  if    the P3/P4 radiator was the culprit re 
    the increased brightness, then it should be possible to predict when
    a flare will occur.
    The radiator was until it started tracking , earth pointing.So , it should 
    be at its brightest when the observer is directly between the sun ( below 
    the horizon) and the station....... not necessarily when the complex is 
    overhead.
    
    Can anyone come up with some figures ?
    
    Thanks
    
    John
