    I had a nice show of a predicted pass of Iridium 81 at mag +0.3 and Iridium
    82 ? at mag -2.3 around 19:08 UTC.
    Magnitudes were close to predicted, but Ir81 had a second +0 flare near
    12h43m +49d - Ir82? did not!
    Between the two predicted flares, I saw about ten flashes between +1 and -2
    (alternating?) and period about 1 s near 12h00m +38d - from Iridium 920 tum.
    
    Observations from site 5919, where I will be most of the nights until Apr.16
