    There should have been a -8 magnitude flare from IR 80 (25469) on 7/23/00 at
    0305UT here in Houston. However, under clear skies, there was no sign of any
    flare at all. This is highly unusual and there does not seem to be any sign
    of maneuvering for that satellite around that time. 
    
    Has anyone else noticed any recent IR 80 flares? Please be on the look out
    as there may or may not be something to this.
    thanks,
    
    Paul
