    This is my first submission to the Seesat list. I recently observed a
    bright and extensive flare from COSMO-SkyMed 4, which is a lesser
    known source of bright satellite flares. Here are the details:
    
    Location: 53.4N, -0.7W
    Magnitude: -1.7
    Duration: ~20 seconds
    Time: 18:50:20UTC, 8 Feb 2011
    
    The results of a 60 second image of the flare are available here:
