Hello All,

I watched Iridium 58 flare up at approx. 8:05:00 UTC 12 May 1998.

I'm at 33 46 00 S  150 42 00 E.

I watched it through very thin cloud, and when it flared up, it was very
bright and had a ring around it.

The magnitude peaked at -8.3

I've seen a few Iridium flares, but this one was the best that I've seen so
