An email notice from CalSky noted the MetOp-A was to flare over my location. MetOp is described in more detail in this url. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MetOp

The craft was moving north almost directly overhead from my location. I set the camera for a 3 minute exposure to assure a capture. North is left. Ursa Major is at upper left.
