    In IridFlar documentation Version 2.0
    Lunar flare prediction added to IRIDFLAR.  A toggle has been added to
    the Main Menu (S, for Source) to select either the sun or the moon
    as the flare source.  For lunar flares, IRIDFLAR requires that the
    sun also be blocked by the earth.  (Diffuse solar reflection by
    Iridium is brighter than the brightest lunar specular reflection).
    You will need binoculars or a telescope to see lunar flares.
    (Source=Moon in the .cfg file)
