I noticed a possible problem, with Iridium 57. I came across it, while scanning the sky, and it looked to have a slow flash. It was bright, when I came across it, but got fainter shortly later, then slight brighter again. Another iridium I had seen, appeared normal.

So looks like it's got a bad attitude. It's still in the operational orbital height for iridium sat's.
