    Tonight while again observing the GALS 2 ( 23717 ) I noticed it was bright again, like last time I
    observed it, except brighter.
    At around 6:08 UTC ( June 13 ) it might have in the 7 to 8th mag range, based on my video obs of
    it. I then tried out my 10*50 binoculars, a few minutes later, and I can't be 100% sure, but I
    thimk I might have spotted it. Either that are was seeing things. The sky was hazy.
    Tonight I will use my wide feild setup, to see if I can detect it. Hopefully when I come home from
    work, and play back the video, I'll spot it, to confirm it does get bright, ie flare up.
    If not, oh well. I still plan on keeping on observing it.
