    Hi Scott,
    I've seen this sat before:  IRS-P2  3.0  2.0  2.0  6.3 d  6.5 (#23323U)
    twice in fact and both times the flashing was more like flares and my timing
    was very inacurate for I did not have any stopwatch with me at the time, so
    I just counted one one thousand one, one one thousand two, and so on, and I
    got a flare every four seconds.  This was pulled from my notes:  3/21/03,
    10:13 PM (Germany). Flashing once every 4 seconds very orange to red flashes
    are slow, more like flares than flashes.  Very unique flares. I can't wait
    to get another look at this one with a stopwatch!  See ya!

    > Hello, this evening I was looking for Cosmos 1447R and came across what I
    think was IRS-P2( 1994-068A ). It was nearly invisible in my binoculars but
    it flared 5 times within a matter of 15 seconds. Am I correct in my
    identification? Is this known to flash or flare like this?
