    Morning Kevin
    When I photographed IRIDIUM 33 is just looked like a typical piece of debri- it 
    was about 2 magnitudes fainter than the Iridium that is about 2-3 minutes behind 
    it on the same track and appears to have no attitude control as it was variable 
    in magnitude giving short bright bits followed by almost invisibility.
