For my location tonite( Dec 17),
 IRIDFLAR predicted 3 flares(all mag -5) within
 3 minutes from 3 satellites! Unfortunately two the satellites were
#25319 98 26A Iridium 69 
#25320 98 26B  Iridium 71
which produced no flares, Ir 71 being listed as tumbling, and Ir 69
having a slightly higher mean motion
