     Recently I telescopically observed ISS for the first time in that manner - 
      nothing resolved.
      
      Can't get Mir in the telescope anymore - too fast.  But it is impressive as 
      always in naked eye and binocular!
      
      This morning, I saw a flare from Iridium 3.  It was -1 in brightness, and I 
      followed it for about 30-45 seconds in binoculars until it sunk too low on 
      the horizon.  Iridium's are about 8000 kilometers high, right?
