    Hi Tom:
    I did similar but not exact simulated run before. U will see SIMILAR 
    magnitude in +/- 8 km ( or 16 km) corridor from a centre line for very 
    bright flares. I am not sure the drop-off is similar for other 
    magnitude. I guesstimage  the visual corridor is around 20-25km from 
    flare centre or (40-50km corridor). 
    >So the question is:What is the normal "corridor of visibility" for the 
    Iridium flares as seen by others?
