    I noted a bright sat flare in my all-sky cam recordings that occurred 
    last evening, April 1, 2010, at 2031:48 MDT.  I checked its identity out 
    through Heavens-Above and it was Iridium 94. H-A listed intensity mag as 
    -2 and intensity at flare center as -9.
    I posted a .mp4 movie extract here:
    I am not exactly sure of cloud density at that particular moment but I 
    think the flare made it to -6.5 with cloud as a factor. Too bad there 
    was cloud because that Iridium was especially bright compared to all the 
    flashing sats I have captured the past few years.
