    On May 9 at 20:30:4x UT, viewing from Frankfurt-Enkheim Germany, approx. 50.15N,8.767E, I looked at 1-power for a predicted Ir 60 flare at 052/44 mag. -4.
    I spotted it at mag +2.5 about 13 degrees left of the predicted (and actual) flare centre.
    But after the flare max I lost it at mag 4, only 5-6 degrees to the right.
    Unless there was a secondary flare before the real one (which I have seen a couple of times), this is the first time I noted asymmetrical ramps.
