Iridium 24 Flare
Thu, 9 Apr 1998 14:51:56 -0600 (MDT)

I just got my pictures back of the night time shots i took recently. The
first picture was of a -2 magnitude flare of Iridium 24 on the night of
March 22. Although i did not see anything and later posts from others saying
no flare from Iridium 24 were seen at their locations, the film did capture
a faint flare. I held the shutter open for about a minute or 2 and got a
faint trail on either side of the flare. I'd guess the magnitude was between
5 and 6. It may have been another satellite but only Iridium 24 was to come
by at that time.
