    I get my Iridium flare predictions form CalSky via email each morning.
    For those not familiar with CalSky, it allows the user to receive  
    daily (or less frequent) reports on such things as Iridium flares,  
    larger satellites transiting the Moon and Sun, possible satellite  
    reentries and visible passes of ISS and shuttle, all calculated for  
    the user's location.
