Iridium flash

There was a beautiful -7 magnitude Iridium "flash" here this evening. 
Again it started as a dim point of light, growing to a brilliant light and
back to a point again in 4-5 seconds.

I had a lot of friendly family harassment about the fireflies in the yard
being what I was going to see.  That is until the real thing came along. 
All got quiet at that time.  Well worth the view on a clear cool evening.

73, Roy
