    The sky got clear, so that I could observe PAS 1R ( 26608 )di it's flare show.
    
    Because of the clouds keeping coming and going, I couldn't locate the geo sat until, after it had
    reached it's maxium flare magnitude. 
    
    At 3:01 UTC ( Nov 11 ) it was around Mag +7.9 
    
    It was in the area of 
    
    3 h 35 min R.A
    - 6 deg 38 min Dec
    
    Assuming it's the solar concentrator's causing the flaring, I have to laught, because they had to
    quite using them as they had a flaw in them, ya right! That's a flaw, causing the sat to flare, no
    way :) I know what they mean when they saidd flaw, just kidding around. 
    
    go PAS 1R go!
    
    People cheer for sport's team, well I can cheer for this geo sat:)
