    Shouldn't this make the flashes harder to see? Convex and concave mirrors
    scatter and spread the light, which would have more of a stealth effect
    compared to flat mirrors, wouldn't it?
    Note, though, that the EGP mirrors are significantly larger than the
    Starshine mirrors.

    There are also many views of UME a.k.a. ISS, which also flashes (mildly):
