    SkyMap support for Iridium flares has been around for quite a while:
    
    Mods from SkyMap 6.1 to 6.2
    ---------------------------
    SkyMap can now be used to find Iridium flares.  Satellite tracks for flares
    brighter than 1st magnitude are plotted in bright yellow for the portion
    exceeding magnitude 1.0.  SkyMap determines which Iridium satellites can
    flare by their 5-digit NORAD designation...
