    Probably rather brightness, since the specular surfaces are comparably
    small and thus produce less obvious flashes. A lucky flash from a tumbling
    Iridium probably lasts for a similar duration, but appears a lot brighter
    due to its antennas being several times larger than the EGP mirror
