    I aimed my video camera, where iridium 7 was going to give a -7 flare at 14:48 UTC ( Jan 29 )
    
    I did this by fiquring out, where in the sky, it would occur, then used the stars to get in the
    right area, before the sky got to bright.
    
    At the appointed time, I for a very short time, observed iridium 7, fly by.
    
    No video, as it to difficult to see. 
    
    Seeing how faint it was to see, in the daytime sky, I won't be observing anyother daytime iridium
    flare.
    
    Just wanted to find out, how easy it be to spot, now I know.
