    this morning I accidentally observed a nice flare from UARS (1991-063B, NORAD 
    with magnitude -2 or brighter for a couple of seconds. Investigating the 
    geometry with my program 
    I obtained good angles, very close to 45 and 29 degrees (angle and tilt 
    Supposing I wasn’t at the flare centre I created a model with the values 45 
    and 30, which place 
    the flare only a few kilometres away.
    If anyone wants the check if it works, the workspace with the model can be 
    downloaded at the following link:
