Greetings all,

I've been watching satellites for a long time, but not actively lately.
I took everyone out of the office into the parking lot a few minutes ago
to see an Iridium flare.  Iridium 36 at 20:02:02 local, mag -7.  Looked
like it was that bright. It takes a lot to impress a casual observer in
my experience, but the brightness and accuracy of the prediction did it.

Clear skies,
Steve Rogers
