Flare Effect

I wondered what would be the best way to have a lens flare interact with an object between the camera and the background? For example if a space craft was moving through a scene and partially cut in front of the flare, there would still be light passing over the craft but it wouldn't be so intense, and as more of the ship covered the flare, the more light would be blocked and more silhouetted the ship would be. Is there any expressions which might help, any tips on how to create this effect would be great.

Try using this for Flare Brightness:

maxDist = 100;
minVal = 10;
maxVal = 100;
L = thisComp.layer("ship");
p = fromComp(L.toComp(L.anchorPoint));
d = length(p,effect("Lens Flare")("Flare Center"));
linear(d,0,maxDist,minVal,maxVal)
