IridiumFlares is an application that can predict the flares made by the constellation of the communication satellites known as Iridium. A flare is a very bright phenomenon that occurs when the light of the sun or the moon is reflected by one of the satellites' antennas.
A world map has been added to preview the selected observation site. The computation can now be optimized by ignoring the day-time passes. The elements filters automatically take into account the status of the element given by the site Celestrak. Corrections were made concerning the parallel computing on multi-processor systems. The sky view has been slightly enhanced.
