    Temperature at 19f, wind chill even worse, tape recorder went on strike
    and pen froze up so no useful data recorded.
    
    Observed:
    
    Iridium 9 man, 24838, like the other tumblers a nice show
    a pair of -3.0 flashes on ascension around 40 and 55 elev. Other
    flashes ranging from -1.0 to 2.0 along zenith and on descent in
    the north.
    
    Iridium 911 tum, 24842,  two good flashes also near -3.0 on ascension
    in the south around 45 elev and a lot of what appeared to be maxes at
    around 2.0 for the rest of the pass.
    
    Iridium 83, predicted -8.5 flare a no show :-(
