    I decided to try to track an Iridium sat with my telescope, taking video 
    when a flare happens. I've been watching for a flare at my location on 
    CalSky.com, but they all seem to require me to travel to see them. A lot of 
    them seem to be visible about 3 miles west of me.
    
    My scope is permanently mounted though.
    
    How often should one expect to see a flare from a particular location?
    
    Is there software that will show predictions of flares from a specific 
    location?
    
    Thanks.
