    Tonight while watching milstar 6 get ready to do it solar panel flare thing, I notice a bright
    star where it was predicted to be. I hadn't noticed it a few minutes, when I was outside aiming
    thew video camera. So something on milstar 6 caused a short increase in magnitude tonight. So in
    addition to the main body, and solar panels, something else appears to cause milstar 6 to flare
    up. If it's clear tommorow, I be on the look out for the effect again, it was cool!
    Time was approx 5:27 UTC ( Mar 15 )
    I would say it got as bright as mag 6.
