    regarding these flares - I've got a little series of one to about mag -6 on
    my website (www.analemma.de in the CCD Imaging section). It was taken at the
    prime focus of my Meade ETX, while I was imaging Mir.
    I also got a picture of a strange little dot flying to the side of Mir, also
    on my web site. Any ideas what it could be? It's definitely real, because it
    appeared on 3 images, all separated by about 1 second each....

    > than Venus).
