    Greetings all,
    
    I just watched the HST as it passed over Houston, and was treated to an
    unexpected double flare!   At approx. 21:34:00, it flared to about -2,
    then at 21:35:30, it flared again to about -4, the brightest I've ever
    witnessed it ... quite a sight, indeed.  I guess the solar panels were
    aligned just right for my vantage point.
