    I use cartes du ciel for astronomy work-its the best piece of freeware I 
    have found to date-it has iridflar incorporated so all you need to do is 
    keep updating the tle data to plot iridium flares, I often copy the charts to 
    show local flare positions on my website. For general astronomy work 
    its extremely adaptable and has many features I would not expect from 
    a freeware package, and it looks good as well
