For anyone observing from Moscow (or nearby), the latest Iridium
should come out of the earth's shadow at around 22:36:15 UTC on 8 September.
At 22:37:15, the constellation will pass very close to Capella, about 45
degrees above the east-northeast horizon, heading right to left.  4 of the
5 satellites should be deployed by this time, with the 5th being deployed
DURING the pass!  --Rob
