 Missed Iridium 21 but observed USA 186 & NOSS 2-1 (E) passing over Niagara, Canada on Sept. 19 above a dark sports complex .


 ... but then COSMOS 2441 flared minutes later through the Summer Triangle almost occulting Altair . I know it's very subjective
but this sighting seemed to be the brightest flare I've ever observed , but then maybe because it was quite dark there .


  Anyway , C-2441 faded then very brightly flashed again half way through the 'Triangle' , then again went dark , but once more
flared super-brightly just beyond S-Triangle heading N .


 Great-treat of triple flares !
