Last evening (25 October) at 23:22:21 UTC  I was treated to a great, 
predicted -7 mag flare from Iridium 51.   By my count that's about 4 reported 
predicted flare in the last few weeks for Iridium 51.

I agree - time to remove the "?" 

My 1st attempt at photographing an Iridium flare actually worked out.  Go 
figure.

I'll find a place for it on my homepage sometime tomorrow.
