    Following is a simple explanation why, after I saw the flare spoken of
    below, I could not also find "pass information" at H-A. It was not
    classified as a daylight flare but, since it occurred in the twilight, the
    nonflaring satellite would have been all but invisible hence no pass data
    was available.  I should have known. :~)

    else to go out and look I checked for the passes of Iridium 8 in H-A at that
    time but found none.
