Hi,
Last night's pass (Tues 3rd Sept.) of Iridium 76 was one of the brightest I have seen (the image doesn't do it justice). I have seen mag -8 flares many times (this one was -8.4) but the very good sky conditions really helped make this one really bright on it's path through Cygnus. Canon 450D 35mm lens ISO800 28sec at f3.5. 21.03 BST.
