Hello there,
Remember me ????

My UFO is not unidentified anymore. Actually, you were right about Iridium flare.
Tonight, I was tracking two of them. The first was from 1998-032-B (Iridium 72) with a mag of -1 and the second, from 1998-048-A (Iridium 3) with a mag of -5 (I really enjoy the sight).
I will sleeping when Iridium 37 lights the sky but now that I know when and where to look, I don't really care: The show's going on tomorrow.

Thanks you
Virgile
