    This was one of the best Iridium flares I'd ever seen!  Iridium 51 (25262)
    leading Iridium 7 (24793) by 10 seconds, producing near-simultaneous -5
    magnitude flares from our location last night.  Heavens-Above predicted the
    flare only from Iridium 7.  Iridium 51 may be stable enough in orientation
    to produce predictable flares.  Keep an eye out for passes of this pair!
    Photography or video highly encouraged!
