    This morning at work, I had a taxi driver come by. I told him about something in the night sky I planned to watch.
    At 8:01 utc, Iridium 77 gave a nice -8 flare. He enjoyed the show.
    I told him about a site where he can get info on iridium flares, so he can see more of them.
    The joy's of working at night, I can go outside alot when there's no one in the store. So nice to do some work outside instead of being stuck in the store all day like my past work place.
