    Two other things about Rob Matson's Iridflar program:  
    It gives predictions for flares from their solar 
    panels as well as their main mission antennas, and 
    also it will give predictions of flares from 
    moonlight.  It may be that Rob's SkyMap will do all 
    of the same things as Iridflar as well as give a 
    graphic of the track on the sky.
    Randy John wrote a DOS program called Skysat that 
    gives graphical predictions of Iridium flares.  I'm 
    pretty sure that it was the very first Iridium flare 
    prediction program that was publicly available.
