Superbird A, 17 Apr 97 UT

Wed, 16 Apr 1997 23:13:24 -0600 (MDT)

Brightest flash at 04:01:19.2 UT (17 Apr 97)

The flash 1.5 revs earlier at 04:00:44.2 UT was almost as bright

Several flashes appeared to have an orangish tint but the low
elevation (about 12 degrees) may have been a factor. Note that
the brightest flashes were not seen with color.

Obs made with 8" telescope although binoculars might still have
been adequate.

Farewell until August Superbird.
