    Hi all,
    It was flare galore this evening, with USA 129, USA 186 and Lacrosse 4 captured 
    flaring. Photographs are at:
    The USA 186 flare was spectacular, a complex double flare reaching mag. -1.5 
    twice. See the image on above URL which captures both flare maxima.
    The other two flares were more modest, certainly that of Lacrosse 4. The latter 
    flare possibility was predicted to me by Philip Masding. He predicted 21:37:34 
    UTC: I observed it at 21:37:37 UTC.
    Positions from my observations will be send tomorrow, I am too tired now....
