    Last night I observed USA 161 (01-044A) passing around 00:00 UTC. It was quite 
    bright for much of its pass, and delivered a very nice slow mag -1.5 flare high 
    in the sky at 00:00:46 UTC (May 12-13).
    
    My camera was open when it flared so I captured a nice flare image again. It can 
    be seen here:

    Flares never bore me!  :-)
