    Wondering if some search elements for this one could be

    Been getting evening predictions for a couple of weeks 
    at least.  I've been trying to some extent with elements 
    that just have variously adjusted drag values.  No luck
    seeing it yet.  I hoped Jari's NW-ound flashing UNK might 
    have been it, but my attempts to see if it matched (again 
    by varying drag) seemed to yield negative results.
    
    Have enjoyed the two nearly parallel Zenits the last few
    nights (even in spite of the last two evenings being 
    clouded out early).
    
    COMETS (25175, 98-011A) did a one-power pass a few hours
    ago; range was less than 1600 km; phase angle was good.
    
    Iridium 914 (97-030A, 24836) did some nice negative-mag
    flashes in the southeast.
    
    Generic location:  30.30N, 97.80W, 200m.
    
    Nice article on TOPEX/Poseidon, which can be observed 
    and sometimes flares very brightly (once occurred a 
    few evenings in a row on southbound passes in the NW):
