    Should I be able to see a daytime Iridium flare easily (and not have to
    be looking at a very SPECIFIC area of the sky) - of, say, a -8
    brightness, as opposed to the difficulties in picking out Venus (which is
    about 32 times dimmmer, if I did the math right)?  I've only made one
    attempt thus far to observe daytimes flares, and I saw nothing.  Of
    course, there were some thin clouds in the area.
