>What are the characteristics of passes when these flare?

Yes, western pass after sunset, for me they have been autumn passes 30-50 degrees up about 1 hour after sunset (always northbound). I have only seen 1 morning pass, but "mirror image" specifications.

You can search for my observations on satflare dot org, look for FPAS reports, report list, enter 36605 as sat ID. Calsky has a flare predictor now also - look under Iridium Flares but set your personal setting to "astronomer", as you would to see Cosmos-Skymed flares. I have not had a chance to see many vs. that model.
