        I noted Jari's reference to Ir 73 -3.0 flare with the moon in the
    pic.  I'm sorry to say that I can't find the pic on my site, Jari could
    you forward it?  I have seen one other pic with a near full moon and
    iridium flare where both were very sharp, an excellent photo comparing a
    flare with the moon,
    much better than my shot of Ir 56, but cannot remember where it is.  It
    may in fact be Jari's pic or another.  I recall that it was black and
    white and again an excellent shot with no blurring and was accessible
    from a link at the VSOHP site iridium links.  The technique, (ie film
    speed, exposure length and filter?) is unfamiliar to me but worth
    exploring for the purpose of catching a lunar crossing
