Hi Tristan,

Good catch! I looked back through all my sightings and also only had steady brightness (albeit I only recorded them once). Looks like I need to add them to my hit list, thanks for the report.

Hello Tristan,

Nice picture!
Inave imaged this triplet many times, but always as strays when imaging
other sats in NOSS like orbits.
They were mostly S and have sometimes a small variation in brightness.

You have been lucky to image them in at the right moment when the
sun-sat-observer angle was right for producing flares.
