Hi Marco

My observations of Prowler over the winter showed it varied widely but 
slowly in intensity during my sessions.  Often it would be invisible 
with my 85mm f1.4 lens and then come up over the course of 30minutes to 
a be clearly visibly only to fade away again.  My observations of it 
usually lasted many hours as I employ an automated staring technique on 
a fixed spot so I can get a sense of the optical and positional 
behaviour of GEO objects over a significant part of its orbit.

Never saw it flare (yet).  But I would usually miss short term events as 
I take 5 images of 10 seconds length every 10 minutes when I do these
