Hi.  I noticed that tomorrow night (Thursday night Nov 6), Iridium 21 will
have a bright flare very near to the moon.  I was wondering if anyone out
there could determine if it will in fact transit the moon.  It will
certainly be within a couple degrees.  I am near Santa Barbara, California
(34.42,-119.89).  Using iridflar, it seems that the best place to see the
flare is near Gaviota, CA (34.48,-120.22).  In any case, I'm sure that a
transit of Iridium 21 by the moon is very dependant on position and I am
hoping that someone out there can help me figure out exactly where to go to
see this transit.

Thanks in advance!
