I think I'm being taken for a ride here. I'm starting to think that the Heavens Above web site is designed to fool the easily led (like me) into dragging themselves out of bed at 3am to stumble outside, tripping over the kids toys on the way, to then be attacked by the dog which sets the neighbourhood canine fraternity off, to then stand freezing looking at the spot in the sky where these Iridium flares are predicted to happen.
I've tried about a dozen times now to see a flare with absolutely no success. My wife thinks I'm mad (and maybe she's right!). I've synchronised my watch to the correct time, I'm out there five minutes before and wait for five minutes after the predicted time...still nothing. What am I doing wrong? I've correctly entered my coordinates and everything, and I'm looking in the right direction.
