Hi Bob,

I infer from your report that the both the brightly flaring satellite and
the already set Sun were to the northwest. So, their azimuths were roughly
equal. If I am right about that, then this observation does seem to fit the
hypothesis that I described.  Most of the extremely bright flares that I've
analyzed have had similar Sun-Satellite-Observer geometries.
