    Dear Ed, dear Seesaters,
    
    Thanks for observing and posting!
    
    Meanwhile, I think that the assumptions I made just don't hold.

    It seems that it isn't justified to assume the precise and ideal orientation
    of the solar arrays as I did. Therefore, these flares are just not
    as predictable as I thought.

    Yes, you are right!
