    Brad and others
    I have observed PAS 1R and other boeing HS702 series geo sat, on different nights. It flared up
    around an area, that has a difference of 12 hours R.A from the sun, are when the sat is at
    oposition for the night, as I call it.
    I have found that so far, only the boeing HS702 series that have the solar concentrators, flare
    up. So it's my belief that solar concentrators are the cause of the flaring.
    Galaxy 11, showing what I mean by solar concentrators
    The things angled at roughly 45 degrees to the solar panel.
    PAS 1R ( 26608 )
    ANIK F1 ( 26624 )
    XM-1 ( 26761 )
    XM-2  ( 26724 )
    GALAXY 11 ( 26038 )
    The one's without the solar concentrators
    ANIK F2 ( 28378 
    GALAXY 3C ( 27445 )
    XM-3 ( 28626 )
    As for the 2 milstars 90023, 27711 and INMARSAT F4-2 ( 28899 ), it my belief that there big main
    spacecraft body, are the cause of the flares.
    That my story, and I am sticking to it.
