    Hi all;
    
    Today I woke up early to see some sats before breakfast. (3.03.2003 morning)
    When I looked over ENE horizon I saw very bright pass on reddish sky at 0556
    Local Time (0356 UTC).
    It was very extreme flare, because Iridium 11 was just 0.9 degrees over
    horizon! Prediction gives 3184 km range..
    
    This shows that you can catch some more, if you change your settings of your
    prediction program limits from 10 degrees to 0..
    
    best wishes..
