    Checking my photograph I found two more, faint flares on a photograph exposed 
    between 20:07:12.30 - 20:07:22.35 UTC (17 March). I missed these visually.
    
    I will measure the image. Correlation of the flare positions with the Iridium 33 
    TLE will then produce the flare period between these two flares.
