    That's interesting. Metop-Flares seem to come in two colors, sometimes yellow 
    and sometimes blue. It seems that the yellow color is reflected in a slightly 
    different direction (but I need more observations to get a better idea about 
    it). There will be three bright Metop-Flares coming up at my place this week. 
    I'll certainly look out for the respective colors.
