Around 1:49 UTC ( Oct 1 ) TURKSAT 1B ( 23200 ) gave a slow, but oh so nice flare.

It occured around the area of

22 h 54 m 
-10 deg 03 min Dec

Managed to see 2 bright flashes from Goes 9 ( 23581 ). They occured before the nice flare from
TURKSAT 1B. Looks like cloudy skies for a few days, so won't be able to keep an eye on it, to see
where it flashes brightly.
