    Observed a significant flare to about -2.5 at 08:26:32 UTC, this was the 
    maximum brightness predicted by Orbitron using the elements below but it 
    only occurred very briefly, the rest of the time it was steady at mag 1 or 
    so similar to the earlier reported pass two nights ago (I was unable to 
    observe last night owing to another commitment.)  The flare was very similar 
    to an Iridium flare.  The object passed below Jupiter at 08:36:49 UTC.
    
    I note that passes are nearly the same every evening, I guess there is 
    probably some purpose in that!
