    Hi All,
    Based on the initial elements released for the latest Iridium quintet,
    only daytime flares will be possible for the first several days except
    from Antarctica, southern Argentina and perhaps southern New Zealand.
    Daytime (morning) glints from the forward MMAs may occur for some
    very specific locations in southern Norway, Denmark, Germany, western
    Austria and northern Italy from 8:14 to 8:20 UT Tuesday morning from
    the A and B objects.  Of course, the orbits are in flux right now, so the
    times will be shifting.  I will try to find time to make more specific
    predictions later today when more TLEs have been released.
