Bright (non)Star in the Sky Tonight
Tonight (7-31-2014) There will be an iridium flare of greater than minus 7 brightness visible from Fargo at 10:43 PM (43 degrees above horizon, azimuth
57 degrees --ENE). An iridium flare is a predictable, sometimes very bright reflection off a satellite. Minus 7 magnitude will make it brighter than any star but not nearly as bright as the moon.
So time is 10:43 pm. Look about halfway in the sky in an east-northeast direction. Look for a sudden, very bright star. It is nothing but a reflection off a satellite mirror but it is very impressive. Even more impressive is our ability to predict these flares.
