    Tonight 2002-10-25 at 17:30:24 UT while walking from the bus to Malma I happened
    to see a fading flare (+3 to inv) leaving the "square" of Hercules, moving in
    dir = 80 (rising slightly, to the N).
    
    The position (RA 16:45 +36) and time agree well with Iridium 73 ? (98-32C,
    #25344), but neither it, nor any other Iridium, is predicted to flare at that
    position (az 270, el 43) for the next few days (majority is SB, 307/06)
