    I expected to see a nice daytime iridium flare this afternoon but saw
    nothing. I went back to H-A to make sure I got the time right and I did. I
    then clicked on the blue lettered, "Iridium 25" at the end of the line where
    the details were listed. Here's the URL: I
    checked the passes of that satellite on 1 Aug around the time that the flare
    was supposed to occur. However, there were no passes listed.  No wonder I
    didn't see a flare.
    Is this a glitch? If so I wonder how often this happens?
    Here are the details as listed in H-A.

    I waited days to see this.
