  1. I was able to see the flare. It was very bright with a blue white color. It did not last long, just a few seconds at the brightest. There were a thin layer of clouds in the sky at the time.

  2. Saw this flare last night thanks to Terry’s email. The sky was still pretty bright but just as predicted my daughter MK and I observed it though a thin veil of clouds.

  3. The flash was very bright and of short duration. Thank you for posting the reminder. I’ve been very busy with work and haven’t had much ‘me’ time to look into these happenings.
