    The query after OT in my heading is because (a) although the flare does not 
    seem to have affected the actual orbit, I am sure that the info on the 
    effect of the flare GP-B will be of interest  (b) I am not sure what the 
    reported effects of the flares on other satellites were.
    
    Solar activity continues- I am well aware of this because I was able to 
    observe a flare yesterday during an open day at our local observatory close 
    to Wellington, New Zealand.  Apparently the solar telescope is sometimes 
    open to the public for a small fee- hoping opening times will coincide with 
    an ISS transit some time :-)
