    Hi all,
    
    Yesterday evening I captured the IGS 5 rocket (09-066B) modestly flaring to mag. 
    +1. It yielded a nice picture and brightness profile which can be seen here:

     From the brightness profile I estimate the brightness maximum of the flare to 
    have been near 21:44:06.9 UTC (not 21:44:06.5 UTC as I previously reported), 
    April 5th 2010.
