     There is an article on Iridium flares -with very persistent music which can
    easily be stopped-  at
    http://www.chessbase.com/puzzle/christmas2003/chr03-7a.htm which is actually
    a chess site.
     Although one of the flare pictures is obtained from elsewhere, there is one
    of a mag -6 flare taken by the author of the article.
     It is possible or even likely that more ISS passes and Iridium flares may
    be posted on the site.
     The article also mentions that they are experimenting with plotting the ISS
    on the Chessbase server
     I have posted feedback to them with more information on relevant sites.
     This is another site which was obtained using the Google alert system on a
    search for "International Space Station" - it happens that I do play online
    chess (not very well!) on another site.   (And of course I will now be
    adding an alert for "Iridium flares" which I had overlooked doing before!)
