This object proves to be a strange one. A fast flasher one night and
steady the next, and so on. Any-one know the shape? (87-74G)

This object (94-61A) is a bit difficult to time. It has a different
flash pattern that's hard to get hold of.

Our variable weather has been a bit difficult lately, hot and clear one
day, cold and cloudy the next.
I'm wondering though whether you people on this list (mainly northern
hemisphere) are interested in receiving flash reports from down here.
Most of them are off topic to you people, at least for a couple of weeks
or so as a rule. If you think so, let me know by private mail. I don't
mind sending only to PPAS. It is a hobby I enjoy. It appears only Leo
and myself are regular suppliers to this list. I know others supply to
PPAS.
I would also be VERY interested to hear from any-one active on this
list, or in the background, that actually uses the information in flash
reports. Again, by private mail if you wish.
