    Intelsat 1R ( 26608 ) was nicer tonight, it reached 4th mag range around 2:05 utc ( Nov 21 )
    The sun is getting closer to it most southern declination, so causing the flares to be brighter. I had noticed in summer, that the flares were brighter as the sun got closer to it's maxium norther declination.
