    On Wednesday evening, Ed and I watched NOAA 17 flare to about
    magnitude -2.  The overall time for brighter than normal
    magnitude was greater than 30 seconds.  The time for brighter
    than 0 magnitude was about 10 seconds.  From that I would guess
    that it is capable of much brighter flares when an exact alignment
    occurs.  The flare occurred near culmination at alt 74, azi 79.
