Although the photo is taken towards 03:22:40 UTC of today, 09/06/2016,
 according to the forecast, the time was at 03:22:29 UTC, and the mirrors
(56,8º, 97,0º). Everything about the first burst.
The first flare lasted about 10 seconds, then disappear about 4-5 seconds
and reappear again for 4-5 seconds later. It was a little weird, because
when appearing, it did directly with the maximum brightness, and it was
fading gradually until disappear and reappear with the maximum brightness
of the second burst to shut forever after.
Moreover, ISS nice pass to magnitude between -2 and -3 during the first
half of its travel.
