    Looking at the nice photographs recently taken from the ISS of Earth and sky, 
    I started wondering 
    if also the Iridium Flares could be potentially photographed from the 
    International Space Station.
    
    By adjusting my program I performed some 3D simulations and generated several 
    predictions. 
    I have uploaded the results of my analysis along with a few pictures and a 3D 
    stereo video of  
    simulated Iridium flares on the following page:

    It would be nice to see also a real photograph!
    
    Best Regards,
    Simone
