 Dear friends,

Today, 9 Apr 2020, another flare occurred around 22:18:50 UT.
Possibly Starlink were #1280 or #1290.

A chart with the possible position of flare are here:

Why I'm writing "possible"?
Because today the sky was partially cloud here and the flare occurred above clouds! During 1 second was possible to observe a glare behind the clouds, consistent with a magnitude around -6.

At that instant, the flare occurred near the coordinates:

altitude = +42 deg
azimuth = 253 deg

The sun was 17d 42m below horizon (-17.7 deg)

with the regards,
Alexandre Amorim
Florianopolis/SC, Brazil
