on Dec 29th evening I recorded from home a 
passage of the couple showing a very nice flare 
(perhaps negative magnitude, I'll try to estimate 
it later from the video), while calsky predicted 
nothing. And yesterday evening I drove 60 km to 
be right on the flare line predicted by calsky 
(magnitude -3) flare, or very little!
