    Shortly, the spaceway geo sat's will finish passing through the unmbral shadow.
    Since the sunlight will no longer be cut off, then the antenna surface on it, will be able to reflect alot of sunlight, ie cause a flare.
    Look around the time, the sat reaches opposition for the night, ie 180 degrees from the sun.
