    Nice to see, after a long time of not seeing it flare, due to the darn weather, and them playing around with it's attitude control system.
    At 2:39 utc ( Jan 29 ) Intelsat 1R is mag 8 range are brighter.
    Now to see how bright it gets, if the sky cooperates, as clouds are in the sky wrecking the view.
