Iridium 31, not 33

Whoops!  I meant Iridium 31.  The Orange County Register actually
jumped on the bandwagon today and printed a front-page story about
tonite's flare.  Overall, I think they did a pretty good job, though I =
their graphic of the track across the sky is a bit misleading, since
only a small fraction of it will be bright naked-eye.

Being a bit snobbish about catering to their neighbor county to the north
(L.A.), the Register failed to mentioned that Long Beach, L.A. and
Glendale would see a much better show than anywhere in Orange
County.  --Rob
