Clicking on the time of the flare will give more details about the flare, including a sky chart.

Please note that the first generation of Iridium satellites are now being de-orbited and replaced with ones of a new design which do not produce predictable flares. This means there will be fewer and fewer flares, and eventually they will stop completely.
