    luckily for me,  because iridium 18 showed up as predicted but the 
    star of 
    the show, the -8th flare of iridium 38, never occurred.
    
    I just looked at nasa j-track 3d and it seems from that software that 
    iridiums 18 and 38 are just about on opposite sides of the planet from 
    each 
    other.  has iridium 38 been on the move recently, and mr. peat just 
    hadn't 
    updated HA?  I sure hate to blow a prediction of a -8th magnitude 
    flare
