    I ran a check, for my location on upcoming flares.
    Heavens above says Iridium 30  will reach -1, yet Rob's Iridflar Program says +0.5
    For another day, Heavens above say's Iridium 60 will reach mag 0, yet rob's program says -2.
    This morning I had iridium flare. It was fainter, then what heavens above predicted. 
    I ran a check, and iridflare gives a magnitude value, closer to what I observed.
