    At 5:59 UTC ( Jan 27 ), galaxy 11 was around mag +7.5
    
    Position 
    
    8 h 14 min R.A
    -6 deg 42 min Dec
    
    near the star, with a tycho star catalog number of 4859 921
    
    I also looked for spaceway 2 and galax 3C, on the tv. Could not see them. So it has to be the
    solar concentrators causing the flaring, at least to me.
    
    I could see milstar 6, but it was no where as bright as galaxy 11.
