Tonight Iridium 43 / 25039 was meant to flare to mag -1, as predicted
using:

Iridium 43
1 25039U 97069A   99333.06429521 -.00000029 +00000-0 -17437-4 0 02684
2 25039 086.4026 180.4435 0002433 074.7254 285.4184 14.34217579107545

I even took a coworker out to show him. However it didn't flare ;-(.
It's not listed as a problem sat in Alan's
http://www.wingar.demon.co.uk/satevo/tle/iridstat.txt nor in Mike's
http://www.fc.net/~mikem/iridium.html.

Wonder if it's still oriented?

Best, Mark
