    This is the startpoint of the trail on the flare image I posted on SeeSat 
    yesterday. Endpoint of trail was inmeasurable as it faded out when sat 
    brightness went below imaging threshold. I suggest some caution with the above 
    datapoint too.
    
    Obtained in very strong twilight, image is light-blue but I still could measure 
    91 reference stars spread well over the image.
