    Sunday evening (June 12/13) we were watching Iridium 914
    (97-030A, 24836) flashes. Suddenly to the left and higher
    up was a very bright flash, and after we both said, "What
    was that?!" there was another flash, maybe about mag. -5.
    I got it in my 8x42 and followed it on to the south. It
    was Iridium 16 (97-030F, 24841), and I was able to watch
    it flashing again on its pass tonight. Here are timings
    from the June 14 UTC pass:
     
    13.62, 13.90, 1.41, 25.44, 1.15, 12.03, 9.78, 2.72, 7.36,
    1.96, 1.51, 3.46, 8.41, 1.43, 3.61
     
    This was from the Ney Museum -- 30.307N, 97.727W, 150m.
     
    The Monday evening Meteor 1-7 (71-003A, 04849) pass was
    obscured by clouds, but Mike and I saw it Sunday evening
    (June 13 UTC). I wish I knew when it might re-enter (if
    it hasn't already)....
