    Hi
    
    Iridium 47 flared as predicted tonight april 13, 2000, 22:07:41 EDT.
    
    About 1m 30s earlier, I observed an object bright enough, -1 to 0 mag,
    almost exactly in the same path as Ir 47 but opposite direction: S->N,
    33  5 el. at 60 to 70 azimuth. I could not see it more than 8 to 10
    sec. because of the trees. It's is not listed in H-A list of brighter
    satellites. If anyone would like to try identifying it.
