    I just got back from watching for two iridium flares, a -8.4 at 17:58:28 and
    a -8.1 at 17:59:47. Both were 63 degrees up and toward the NNW. I think a
    small cloud blocked the first one (I didn't see it) but the second one was
    obvious. It lasted long enough for me to redirect my sister's line of sight
    so she got to see it too. It was nice!
    
    The first was iridium 95 and the second was iridium 58. Are these two a pair
    with one that is a backup?
    
    Thanks.
