    And necessary to compute the rotation. Since you can see them for hours, the
    flash track must be nearly parallell to the satellite's celestial track, and
    a few degrees of latitude may ruin the show, but certainly shift the
    start/end times of bright flashes. This shift allows at least the flare
    track angle to be computed. For a complete determination, observations more
    widely spaced over the celestial sphere, or over the seasons, are needed.
