    Should you have clear skies on Sunday (22-OCT-06) would anyone on a line 
    between Liverpool and Glasgow look toward the North, 33 deg elevation to 
    check whether Metop produces a flare from the center ASCAT antenna? The times 
    are:
    	Liverpool  20:39:12 UTC (this is at shadow egress; Liverpool actually is 
    about 20 km east of the line but I think the effect should be visible)
    
    	Glasgow 20:40:02 UTC (maximum flare).
    
    I'll try to post a few such predictions over the next few days for various 
    parts of the world where I suspect potiential observers. Keep in mind that so 
    far it's just a theory. Any observation reports (positive or negative) will 
    be appreciated.
