    What?  The flare starts a few seconds before its peak brightness, and it
    subsides to dim visibility a few seconds later (if you care to, you can
    track an Iridium flare naked-eye in light-polluted skies for many
    seconds, even over a minute.  I've done it.).  They can start rolling the
    tape ten to twenty seconds before the peak - and they'll get the whole
    flare.
