>Great photograph, I thought. A starry sky, moonlit landscape, our house, 
>two monster flares... But the first one didn't come up. The second
>behaved as it used to be, showing a nice -4 flare. A few minutes later 
>I saw 3 short, bright (mag -1) flashes separated by aprox. 0.8s in Virgo,
>exactly at the place Iridium 18 (97-34C in this case) should be.
>Unfortunately, I had my shutter already closed...
