    Obviously I could determine the exact circumstances of this event 
    but if the submitters could provide basic info such as direction
    of motion and general location in the sky it would help others
    look for similar events.
    I believe this event had the predicted flare at about 7:49:12 PM local
    at azimuth 122, elevation 52.  Southbound pass east of zenith, max el
    58 degrees.
