Iridiums 11 and 52 made potential flare passes over the Chicago 
area last (Saturday) night.

Iridium 11 was seen making several rapid, brief, 0 mag flares as 
if in a tumble, just north of the part of the sky it would have 
flared in. Iridium 52 put on a normal show as seen with a near 
zero flare angle.
