List of predicted Iridium flares incomplete

Asked by Michael Fesser on 2017-02-28

Hi!

In my Stellarium (v0.15.1, fresh installation, no old data) the list of predicted Iridium flares doesn't work as expected and as I've seen from other users. For example for my current position there's a flare predicted for today at about 18:58:32 (calculation taken from CalSky.com), but the list in Stellarium remains empty. If I adjust the time to shortly before the flare, Stellarium shows the correct prediction.

Any way to solve this issue or at least investigate what's going on here?

Thanks.

Please try install a fresh beta and check it again.

Hello, thanks, it works now. I downloaded the latest version 0.90.0.9153. The calculations for the Iridium flares took some time (I already thought Stellarium had crashed), but finally I got a list of predictions for the next six days or so. I've checked them with calsky.com and the values seem to be correct. Problem solved I think.

Thanks.
