Iridium Satellite Flare tonight 8/21

Iridium Satellite #75 put out a bright flare (reflection of sunlight) tonight outside my window! Click image to see the time stamp of the event. I calibrated my watch to the seconds by calling 1711 just before the flare and positioned my video camera exactly as i like the flare to transverse the FOV.
You too can find out such flares in your location

Whoever you are, its nice to review how we look at the moon again after our visit here. Its check against our beliefs system, imagination, logical thinking, etc.

Check out the night sky and if its clear you will be amazed.
