    	Just goes to show how unreliable the flares are from the spare Iridiums.
    Ir 24t and Ir 69? were passing side-by-side, a few degrees apart, with 24t doing its
    usual flashing and twinkling act then Ir 69? flared to a little better than 1.0,
    (un-predicted by Iridflar).  Nice sight, this occured Jan 15, 1999 00:15:25 and was
    forgotten in the posted obs report.
    	I'll be updating and enhancing the website, (splicing some pics and giving it a
    cleaner look), over the next week as the weather forecast looks abominable through
    Saturday.  A reminder that there is a data page at the website.  It contains
    reports for 1999 as well as data collected on Iridium tumblers, Abrixas, Starshine and
    Decaying objects.
