    >Hi! Once again following Simone Corbellini's predictions I observed two good flares from Iridium 69 this morning.
    > First flare: start 03:49:47 UTC, duration 2 seconds, mag 4, az. ENE, alt. 60 degrees.
    > Second flare: start 03:50:45 UTC, duration 2 seconds, mag 4, az. E, alt. 60 degrees (above Vega, crossing beneath Lacrosse 5).
    > These were two comparatively long and faint flares, quite unlike the brief intense "glints" from Iridium 33.
    > All best wishes,
