    Thank you, Mike McCants and Makoto Kamada, for your replies.
    Iridium 74 (25345) and Iridium 64 (25287) fit very well in position,
    speed and time, but not in magnitude. If I am right, Iridium sats have
    an intrinsic magnitude of around +5, and the objects I observed shown a
    magnitude of +3. Is there any chance for Iridiums to reach those
    magnitudes (if we discard flares, of course)? Thanks again.
    Best regards,
    Oscar Rodriguez.-
