About an hour ago (23:30 UTC 15 October) Iridium 85 made a visible pass here. 
 It's in a slow tumble - probably a rotational period of 3-5 seconds.   Don't 
expect a flare but you may see some 1x flashes.  

Iridium 19 made a nice -8 mag flare at 00:06:40 UTC 16 October.  Hopefully 
the photo will be OK - my first attempt.
