    Hi folks:
    
     A minus 7 flare just before 8pm outside my window.  I was literally 
    waiting for the background stars to appear in order to fix this frame. 
    Passing clouds did not interfere much with Iridium #52 at all. I saw it 
    coming from the top edge, I hit the rec button and watched in awe as it 
    increase in brightness and finished exactly as the skymap plot indicated 
      A helicopter from nearby military base added a wavy think line on top 
    of the frame...when the flare was in progress
