I seen today at 17:48 UTC bright flare HTV-5 (KOUNOTORI 5)! About a
distance of 1212 km, with a phase angle of 92 brightness satellite
appreciated -0.5m. Calculated mirror 20.3 146.6. In the rest of the
HTV-5 segment it was not visible even in binoculars because of weak
brightness. Flares is no longer observed. The span of the HTV-5 was at a
height of 9 upper culmination above the southwestern horizon.
