    I observed the object Ed discovered last September recently and
    it also showed sharp specular flashes that occurred in a series
    which got brighter and then faded over a period of several
    minutes.  Its period is about 5.5 seconds while this object's
    period is about 10.5 seconds.
    
    Elset based on 13 obs over 25 minutes last night and several
    obs the previous night:
