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.
