STARBURSTS: Interesting stuff from the world of Astronomy

Iridum Flares! Check out this page for an easy naked-eye observing outing. This page will be setup for Powell Observatory in Louisburg, Kansas. Just "edit" the location to add your observing location and bookmark that page. The bright "flare" lasts only a few seconds as the sun reflects off an Iridum satellite, but it is a sight to see! Some are -5 in magnitude! Go to the GSOC Satellite Visibility Page!
