Iridium Obs, 7 May 97

Observed just below Betelgeuse at 03:47 UT.  Elevation about 5 degrees.

Only noted three objects but poor viewing angle explains that.  Spacing
does appear much wider that 24 hours ago.  I still think a nice high
elevation pass would be nice to see.

Magnitude about 6.5-7. Used 7x50 binocs.
