    Last night from my location in NW Missouri, I saw Iridium 58 and Iridium 90
    flare within one minute of each other.  Iridium 58 was much brighter than
    predicted, close to the max of -8.  Iridium 90 was significantly dimmer.
    The Heavens-Above predictions on brightness were exactly the opposite.  They
    did impress my son who is on spring break!
