    Hi all
    
    The original poster's prediction from H-A was also for Iridium 96
    (27376, 2002- 005E).
    
    Iridium 96 is one of the spare satellites, and is a substantially
    lower orbit (675 x 671 km, compared with the operational orbit of 779
    x 776 km), so it has the potential to produce a brighter flare (but
    the observer's position will be much more critical).
    
    Best of luck with observing the flares! ... Rod
