    Already on the day after Ed's mail I noticed that Insat 2D reached 20 degrees 
    in az 224 at convenient hours.
    FWIW, I watched intermittently 19:40-21:00 for 2-minute intervals - but that 
    was RA 07:00 to 08:20, and I saw no flashes. If I get clear weather in the 
    weekend at Malma, it will be (in the SE) at RA 14:20 at 23:00 local (daylight) 
    time. OTOH, the increasing Solar declination should push the flashes further 
    south, and my latitude (+59) could make the flashes invisible, or at least 
    move them considerably, depending on the rotation axis.
