 blockquote, div.yahoo_quoted { margin-left: 0 !important; border-left:1px #715FFA solid !important; padding-left:1ex !important; background-color:white !important; } Very cloudy tonight so only one observation - the first good double flare this season of TerraSAR-X and tandemSAR-X (31698 and another ID I forgot). Saw one 6 days ago that was unremarkable, only flaring to +3. Tonight, both were clearly seen naked eye within minutes of an arc of each other and flaring to -2 or better. If you haven't seen these yet, we seem to be moving here into the fall/winter season for them. Tonight's aspect was nearly perfect – 56° elevation in the west about 40 minutes after sunset. They can also be seen with a mirrored aspect in the dawn.
