    After awhile of no bright flares, i had a prediction for 2 -8 flares within
    3 min of each other. I watched as the first one Iridium 21 ? #25778U 99032B
    start to brighten, however it reached only mag 0 rather than the predicted
    -8. Just 3 min later Iridium 65 #25288 98021D showed up at the same spot and
    it reached a magnitude of -4. Below is the output for the 2, times are local:
