I'd prefer to have all Iridiums included with predictions, for the
inoperational often show more interesting flares. Maybe prediction softwa=
could list them with a special warning about the unreliability of the
prediction. Like to add a question mark after the number of the Iridium
satellite in IridFlare-outputs.

Hej d=86, Marco

CP>I read a couple of messages recently about Iridium 5 not showing up wi=
th a
flare when expected. Here is an extract from a message I received from Th=
Vermeesch in Holland which seems to confirm this. I intend to remove Irid=
ium 5
from the list of valid "flarers" at our web site, at least temporarily.
