    Hi all,
    Have been taking pictures of the flare region of the geosat belt again, and 
    around 20:47 UTC (Mar 4) Turksat 3A (08-030B) was flaring brightly. Around 20:55 
    it had notably become fainter.
    Lots of other geosats on the images as well: normally the 50mm lens only 
    captures the Mentor's and only occasionally another geosat, but now one single 
    image is full with dots!
