    Incase anyone interested. Using my wacky way of finding where to go to watch 
    a flaring iridium satellite going across the moon's disk, try this location 
    using orbital elements for iridium 12
    54.798 N
    75.104 W
    Approx time = 10:21:45 UTC give or take on Jan 24
    If you use skymap, you should see a iridum satellite going across the moon, 
    for me it's around mag -1. It goes across where the moon is lit by sunlight, 
    wrecking the view.
