    We just went out from our home in Harlingen, Texas to admire the pass 
    of Iridium 10 at 18:31:26 local, 2005-11-10 as predicted by Heavens 
    Above.  It showed up on time, but both my wife and I noted independently 
    that the flare was more prolonged and not as peaked as others we've seen.  
    
    In addition I, but not she, thought that it had a bit of a reddish hue 
    not noted on other Iridium flares.
     
    FWIW.
