    I had a predicted -6 flare by Iridium 53 #25173 98010E and my prediction had
    Iridium 86 ? #25528 98066B only seconds behind it. I went out and one became
    visible at 1x which i thought was Ir 53 but then 2 deg above (W) and 5 deg
    in front (S) of it, the real Ir 53 became visible and moments later flared
    to -6 while Ir 86 ? trailed behind and below, not as bright but a nice
    formation pass by 2 Iridiums.
