I've successfully recorded a "daylight" flare...actually one which took place 10
minutes after local sunset...using IRIDFLARE to tell me where to point the
camcorder.  It was a -8 mag flare, and came thru like gangbusters just before a
cloud deck rolled over the spot in the sky where it happened.

Just a question. Is it possible to record predicted flares with a video
camera? Has anyone tried?
