I looked for the 3 Iridium flares as I posted earlier today. Saw 2
anyway.

Iridium 22 is in its proper orbit & flared on time to the predicted -8.
(Maybe a bit dimmer.)
Iridium 69 status ? didn't flare.
Iridium 20A status ? flared OK to about the -1 predicted by Skymap. It
dimmed to perhaps mag 1 for a few s then flared again to about mag 0
then faded.

Best, Mark
