    I get a prediction of -5 flare from iridflare program for Iridium 66 at
    22.01.10, but on Heavens Above it shows it going in shadow at 22.01.05 and
    on Skymap at 22.00.55 red to blue line and line ends in blue at 22.01.15 (
    I'm sorry but the times are EDT on 8-25-01 and on Skymap I'm not sure I
    understand the color change ) My coordinates, to the best of my estimates,
    are Lat +39.4697 Lon -79.3393 Alt 2573 feet . Will I see this if I am lucky
    enough to have clear skies?
