    Last night I photographed Iridium 43 flaring to -8 mag in poor skies at 
    01.06.06 UTC April 25. Since 1999 I have seen this Iridium flare to -8 mag 6 
    times and observed many other times in lesser flares.
    Tonight while reviewing photo on the typical cloudy night I saw another sat 
    in the photo. Using Idsat and Skymap I was able to ID it as Cosmos 371 
    rocket/ 70083B / 04579.
    
    Lat. 39.4707 Lon. -79.3388 Alt. 2753 ft.  -4 UTC
