Man-made Objects:

International Space Station (ISS): Any visible flyovers will be added closer to the observing date.

Iridium Satellites: These satellites can produce bright flares (brighter than Venus) from their antenna arrays. Any visible flares will be added closer to the observing date, as prediction accuracy improves.
