Uhhh... I think I will renege on my statement saying the Iridium sats will 
be visible naked eye.  I just found info saying the operational orbit is 780 
km with a 100 min period.
See-
http://leonardo.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/Quicklooks/iridiumQL.html 

that has specs including dimensions (13 m long by 4 m wide) and links to 
related sites.
