    Hi all ,
    
    Thanks to David Taylor on the rig-l group , which specialises in wx fax
    imaging , my attention has been drawn to the following
    http://oiswww.eumetsat.org/~idds/images/out/20040304_000000_08_VIS006-0_0.jpg
    
    The image shows  the full disc (visible) ,as captured by Meteosat 8 at "0"
    degrees , midnight on March 4.
    An hour after the Hotbirds started to go into earth shadow , it was the turn
    of those birds at  0degs , and if you look closely at the image , bottom
    left , you can just see the result of Sun flare on the scanning mechanism.So
    what we have here is the "other" end of
    story ,...the sun in oppsotition , as seen from the satellite  :O)
    
    Brilliant stuff !
    
    Regards,
    
    John.
