    I also observed a double and possibly a triple Iridium flare several
    years ago in Albuquerque NM (USA).  Cannot provide anything but general
    conditions.  Early evening.  Southbound pass in the east.  Guesstimate
    is that the elevation of the first flare was 30-45 degrees, second one 
    lower.  First flare I think was south of due east.
