    Last night was a good night for iridium spoting.
    First at 8:26 pm edt, iridium 41 produced a nice bright flare from it's solar panel, then 3
    minutes later a -6 flare from the antenna:)
    Then at 8:42 iridium 920 produced at least 4 quick very bright flashes.
    Then at 8:55 iridium 44 produced some flashes.
    My neirbour watched all the above with me.
    Now If it's clear tonight, I can see a -7 flare from iridium 42:)
