    Has anyone actually seen the above flare? There was a
    mag 2 flare predicted by Iridflar for 5:23 GMT, and I
    think I saw it. There was thin cloud about, but there
    was certainly something moving from North to South
    in aproximately the right place at the right time.
    I know the sat itself is unreliable flare-wise due to
    it being at a "parking" altitude, so I was interested
    to know the likelihood of it being what I saw.
    
    Lovely pass of Mir this morning - and possibly brighter
    than the predicted mag of -1.1 until it reached max
    altitude.
