This image displays the relationship between two intervals of Flare mode, Yohkoh Ephemeris, and KSC contact time. Since this 'flare' happens at night and during a KSC contact, it is probably related to real time KSC commanding. It is associated with a BCS memory dump (due to BCS SEU error). Preliminary thinking is that Flare mode is used facilitate the dumping of BCS memory during the KSC night contact (will confirm). Since this event was flagged in the event log, perhaps we will consider filtering out flares which occur during Yohkoh night!
