    The following was sent to me and apparently not to Seesat,
    Since it confirms the general location and circumstances of
    the England obs, it tells me what type passes might produce
    double flares.  In fact, it is consistent with the one I observed
    a few years ago.
    "Yup.  Mine too.  Last night Iridium 19 double flared.  Prediction was for 
    19:36:04 (Seattle time) at an elevation of 53 degrees and azimuth of 134 
    degrees on a southbound pass.
    I watched the flare and looked away.  When I glanced back it was back 
    brighter and longer than the first flare."
