	Using information from the German Space Operation Center's web page at as a guide, my three sons and I just observed our
first Iridium flare, from Iridium-43.
	Don't last too long, do they?  ;-)
	We are all suitably excited and looking forward to seeing more, as well as
the other "regular" satellites.
