    Similar flare seen from NW UK Jean
    About 2 secs in duration as satellite passed to the east.
    For what its worth I have put an image here...
    .......on the "HTV " tab , which shows three captures during and after the flare.
    Underneath I have also indicated my interpretation of the atitude of the satellite.
    Direction of travel was right to left.....HTV seems to be travelling "booster" forwards.
    My images were taken at about the same time as Jeans report...unfortunately my laptop clock is not correctly synchronised so I can't be any more precise.
