Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

While I was out waiting for a flare or other satellite to appear, I saw another flare which wasn't in the predictions. What could it have been?

This was probably a flare from a failed Iridium satellite. Several satellites have failed in orbit, and are not in the nominal orbit and/or attitude. However, they can still produce flares just like the operational ones. The difference is that we can't predict when they will happen.
