    Iridium flares!!! Go see a -7 or brighter (-8) iridium flare.  Many can be
    found on heavens above.  After you try that then try seeing a daytime
    iridium flare (alson on heavens above).
    Show one of these to someone who has never seen one and they will be
    stunned.  Stunned!  Just when you think it can't get any brighter it keeps
    getting brighter.
