it does say, check out steps 4-5 on page 6 ("Setup")

it will be 10 flares for up to 5 player games, more than that when playing 6+ player games (expansion). But gotta make sure the flares from the aliens actually in play are in, which you will guarantee by following the setup instructions for alien selection and flares

At least 10, or 2 per player, whichever is bigger number.

The rules for the flare cards are specified in sections 4 and 5 under 'Setup' of the FFG rules:

Cosmic Encounter Rulebook wrote:

4. Choose Aliens: Shuffle the flare cards and deal two to each
player...

5. Prepare Flares: The flares dealt to each player are then
taken and added to the cosmic deck. If there are fewer than
five players, extra flares are randomly added to bring the
total in the deck to 10 flares. Shuffle the deck.
