    Default Christmas light show



    There was a Christmas light show this evening - three Iridium flares in an hour, two within a minute of each other in the same place. It was great to watch the two satellites chase each other across the sky, and quickly flare up brighter than anything else up there, before receding into darkness. I got two of them.
