    Just had a predicted -2 flare for Iridium 69? (25319, 98-26A), 
    but it did not happen.  I thought that I might have seen a 
    couple of tumble-type maxima of about +3.5 around the right 
    time, but at one-power from not-very-good site (UT Austin 
    campus, which is a little better without the sports field 
    lights to the east), I am not certain.
    GRO (21225, 91-27B) made a very bright pass here tonight --
    the brightest I've seen it in a long while. 
    Iridium 24 (25105, 97-82B) did at least three very bright (-4?), 
    irregularly separated flashes after its culmination, roughly during 
    the period 1:21:55-1:22:30 UTC 13 January.
