    Right as it should, at around 3:22 UTC ( July 27 ) Intelsat 1R ( 26608 ) flared up to, what looks to be the third magnitude range.
    
    Sun was at 
    
    8 h 26 m R.A
    +19 deg 10 min Dec
    
    Sat at

    Not the best skies, hazy and distant lighting.
    
    I never get tired of seeing this one, flare up.
