What is an Iridium Flare?

It's kind of like a predictable shooting star. If you're in the right place at the right time it can be very impressive.

According to Wikipedia it's -

"The phenomenon caused by the reflective surfaces on satellites (such as antennas or solar panels) reflecting sunlight directly onto the Earth below and appearing as a brief, bright flare."

Enjoy and Happy Hunting
