    	It seems to me that flares to the South East of me are longer in
    duration than those to the South West of me. To clarify this statement, I am
    able to see the satellites with the naked eye, for longer, both before the
    maximum intensity is reached, as well as afterwards, whereas the flares to
    the South West of me are over and done in a matter of a few seconds. Is
    there an explanation to this?

    PS 	I only have experience of viewing flares at sunset. I am not the
    world's greatest morning person! :-)
