Magnitude -3 Iridium Flare!
Technical details: Taken at 8:53:20pm local time. Exposure: 40 seconds f2.8 ISO 100 70-200mm lens @ 80mm
Colors were tweaked in Photoshop. Original image was washed out due to Las Vegas light pollution.

Just sign up and put in your location. Very cool site. It show pass predictions for everything, HST, ISS, STS, Iridiums, just about every other piece of junk that's up there.
