    I have been having frequent visible passes by Iridium 86 ? #25528 98066B
    lately, every second day it seems and last night it was in company with
    another Iridium again, Iridium 10 #24839 97030D this time. Although
    predicted to flare to -1, Ir 86 ?, it maybe got to mag 3 while Ir 10 reached
    it's -4 on time, time and date local, UTC -7.

    A few minutes after the Iridiums, Okean-O r #25861 99039B came into view and
    it seemed to be in a very slow tumble as it vanished from view for several
    seconds and became visible again although there was some Aurora haze in the
    sky which may have blocked the view.
