    I am observing the milstar at 68 degrees West,do it's flare thing:)
    
    Observing it on the tv, and in binoclars. So easy to see.

    Position was 
    
    14 h 14 m R.A

    It's fun to watch the milstar main body flares. Who needs solar panel flares, around the equinox.
    
    Getting it on video, to upload to my website later.
    y.Typing this as I sit outside, and enjoy a clear sky, something rare for me lately.
    
    Now to wait for miltar 6 to flare up.
