    I normally observed iridium flares in a dark sky, but I though I go for a daytime one.
     
    At 0:34:37 utc ( Aug 20 )  Iridium 68 was precicted to flare.
     
    I managed to find the general area of sky in time, and watch it flared up nice and bright as predicted, so nothing wrong with it, ie don't have a bad attitude.
     
    The star to the lower right is Sulafat ( Gam Lyr  )
