Hello!

So this is again a good time of year to observe geostationary satellites flaring? We received an observation to our Finnish observation database Taivaanvahti about a flare in the sky from a casual observer. I was able to rule out the possibility of Iridium flare, so it could have been a flaring geostationary? There was no photo with the observation, but according to the observer, the flare was seen in southwestern sky at altitude of 40 degrees.
