    My 1st point is after picking it up near eta cygnus. Bright and moving fast at an altitude of 337 miles when my field of view is only 1.4 degrees. I sometimes loose sight of it when moving my chair but just keep pushing 8 inch dobs in the same direction to find it again. Soon after the last point the trees took my light.
    Earlier I watched and photographed Iridium 31 flare to -8 mag. Showed it to a friend and his wife via telephone. It was their first. They said it was bright but I need to check their predicted brightness for their location about 10 miles from me.
