    Hey All,
         Based on seeing a local midnite double-geosat
    flare last October, I predicted - based on the
    anti-solar position - that I should see this same
    event last night. And I did! Here is my original post:

    A day later Kevin posted for me an image I took of the
    event.
         With the anti-solar point at +8deg 45min
    declination the two geosats flared up again at 7:54UT
    at around Dec: -5 and RA: 10hr 37min. I think folks
    like Ed (Austin, TX) and Brad (Tulsa, OK) should
    attempt to check this out tonight if you happen to be
    up at that late hour! I'll try to get a picture of it
    again. High level cirrus clouds are headed this way
    though.
    
         Regards,
