While on vacation, I saw a double Iridum flare in Cass. Last night I did 
a quick search and found that Iridium 28 and Iridium 91 ? were in that 
exact location of the sky at the time. Iridium 28 flared to -1 or -2 mag 
and 91? at around 0 mag. I saw 28 first then 91? came on as 28 was 
fading. The interesting part was that 28 lasted almost 10 seconds while 
91? more like 4 to 5 seconds.
