    Awesome, another area of sky, it reaches naked eye magnitude:)
    Time is 1:52 UTC ( Oct 29 )
    It's around 
    1 h 34 min R.A
    -6 deg 40 min Dec
    It's brighter then Magnitude 4.
    This is a different surface, as the flares I have observed from it, are around 3:10 UTC, give are take a few minutes. That 3:10 UTC time is the same time, I observed it flare up, in Feb 2006 and 2007
    Go Intelsat 1R go !
