 Dear friends,

After a short "flares season" of starlinks, in recent nights starlinks are fainter.

Follows part of my report sent to Mallamma:

Same here Marco.....only saw naked eye about one in three of the train 
around 21ooGMT and as you say , faint.
I did see , during a 20 minute observation at least one bright flash/ 
glint , which caught me by surprise a few degrees short of zenith.

Best wishes

John
