Hi Doug,

I happened to catch that same flare last night from north Glendale (75th and
Unionhills). From here it was a rather dim short flare (about 2 seconds or
so), centered N-S but east of  the main part of Cygnus. Where were you
observing from?

Thanks David, but I had the 2150 flare at mag. -5; I don't know why that 
info did not show up for me when I first checked the site with my location. 
Anyway, I know it was at 2150 because my watch is always set by WWV. 
Anyway, you're right, it was an Iridium Flare.  I was off center by a few
