THanks.  I was just about to post and ask about this.  I used to observe the 
Iridium Flares about 10 years ago, but have long since lost the program I used 
for prediction, and actually had forgotten what they were called, or I would 
have googled it.  But a couple nights ago I was watching a very dim sat go 
across the sky, and it flashed like an Iridium, although not quite so bright 
and it flashed more than once, so I don't think it was a real Iridium, but it 
made me want to try watching for them again.
