    Decided to check up on the XM-1 geo sat ( 26761 ), since the sun is getting around the same declination, as for when I have observed a flare from XM-1.
    Well as expected, XM-1 is flaring up, to mag 8 are brighter range. Time was around 5:55 utc. The flare last's awhile, and is being caused by the solar panel. That's my story and I am sticking to it.
    Over the following day's, it should get brighter.
