    Nice clear sky. 92-052A was captured as a stray on one of the images, close to 
    96-072A and twice flaring brightly within 10 seconds (seen naked eye as well) to 
    mag. +0.5 resp. +1.5.
    
    Set up the camera with automated timer later to capture a classic startrail 
    image centered on Polaris. Metop-A was captured flaring this way near 20:37:55 
    UTC (uncertainty of a few seconds in that flare time).
