I found this web site, www.heavens-above.com, while looking for International Space Station pass predictions.
There are predictions for Iridium Flares, which is where the angle of the solar arrays are perfect enough to reflect the sun up to -9 magnitude, 40 times brighter than Venus.
Saw my first last night and it was pretty cool, plus there are a lot of other predictions for other satellites.
