    I had a -8 predicted flare for Iridium 38 (97-069E, 25043) 
    and saw nothing.  A couple of minutes later Iridium 82 
    (98-051A, 25467) flared about +1 as predicted by Iridflar.  
    Rod Sladen wrote a discussion of these two a few weeks ago:
    Somehow I miscalculated and missed ETS 6.  Apparently I 
    gave up just about the time it might have been starting 
    to flash brightly.  On site I didn't have a notation and 
    couldn't remember when we saw it flashing in the WSW on 
    October 24 (UTC).  I looked for it in the general RA/Dec
    region as that night but did not see it there.
