    Now I wonder what sat, he could be talking about :)
    
    I had been keeping my eye on, those 2 iridium's near other for awhile, so as soon as I read his message, I knew what the other sat is :)
    
    The other sat is iridium 51 ( 25262 ).

    They will be somewhat near each other for a few days, due to they have similar orbit's, and so there orbital velocity is similar.
