Hi all,

 I've noticed that Ir 14? & Ir 11tum make double, sometimes triple,
observable passes in one evening (At least at this location).Usually low
in the east, near zenith,and low in the west.  Last night I observed Ir
11 tum low in the east, and could discern its rotation rate only, with
no major flashes.  I missed the later higher pass due to time
constraints. The question is has anyone recorded any major flashes on
the lower elevation passes (say 5 to
20 degrees elevation)?  I'll check several multiple passes here over the
next few evenings.

Observed another series of mag 1 to 3 flashes from Ir 14? last night.
