Iridium Flares

Post by dean_kos » Tue Apr 26, 2011 8:16 pm

I witnessed my first Iridium Flare on Sunday evening .... quite something. If any of you out there havn't seen one of these then I recommend looking out for them because they will surprise you in a way that you will wonder how on earth you have never seen one before !!
I used an app on my iphone called (not surprisingly)" iridium flares" ( bet they were up all night thinking of that name :lol: ) but the good thing for non iphone users is that the app takes its data straight from the heavens above website and that is freely avaliable online for anyone ........
Well worth a look.
Gonna try catch one on camera as soon as the cloud parts, watch this space......
