    Spent the weekend in the Anza-Borrego area. I just printed the
    Heavens-Above predictions for Borrego Springs & headed out.
    
    3/24 an unexpected pleasure; an unpredicted pass of Lacrosse 2. I guess
    it changed orbit recently. Anyway, it flared to mag 0 as it culminated.
    
    3/25 saw a good daytime Iridium flare near sunset. Nothing subtle about
    this one! Good clear sky.
    After sunset saw more sats from Blair Valley.
    Cosmos 1953 flared to mag 2 briefly.
    Ir 12 flared as predicted, then gave a second flare later, 15 degress
    along track, to the same mag.
    
    Best, Mark
