Default Flare again!

After the last effort, I had waited enough to get the next flare, but only a moderately bright one (according to the forecast) materialised today, at 19:45:28, 13 deg NNE and 30 deg Altitude, between -4 and -5 magnitude. But the sky was a little overcast. I had set the direction, with a little better foreground than the previous blank photo, and clicked with precision, eagerly looking at the sky for the flare. To my disappointment, I could not see any flare, so I packed my camera and got down from the terrace. Half an hour later, just to see if I had made any mistake, I looked at the photo taken, and "Eureka"!, there it was!

I must admit it appears very faint in the original photo, and I have tweaked to give the following result.
