    Thanks, Tony.  This fits nicely between IR53 and IR10 and is a better starting
    point for the search.  The old Iridium 9 elset from September is, after 4 months,
    about 2.5 minutes out from the nominal position.
    I have no flare opportunities from this orbital plane until March now, so I
    am glad that some one else may be able to look out for Iridium 84.

    That's about 37C higher than here :-( but, at least, we have had some clear
    and cold nights recently, after weeks of totally overcast sky!
