    I played back the captured video from last night, as the flare from the XM-1 and XM-2 geo sat's, were much fainter then the other day.
    
    This flaring, is being caused from the solar panels, to me. XM-1 and XM-2 are being used as backup satellites, ie spare's and so only transmit telemetry data.
