    Yes!  I only know of iridium lunar flares.  The iridium flares are
    among the brightest solar flares so they are either the brightest
    or among the brightest of the lunar flares.  Also they are
    extremely predictable unlike other satellite flares but you will
    need a telescope to see them (not naked eye).  More details,
    instructions and prediction software here:
