Resending - Ed has responded. Might be an option while moon is full.

Ed and list, 

 With the moon right in the middle of the field I want to check for flaring Geo sats, I 
 remembered that long ago Ed Cannon reported that some Hughes built spacecraft would flare at 
 60° off the anti-Sun point. Is there a specific list, or is it just the ones with the solar 
 concentrators as described on Gunters Space page?
