    I should have put a "smiley" with that one.  The flash may last a full
    second.

    Yes, and the night after the report of 189, I got 190 seconds!  This is
    one 
    for which I ought to try to calculate from one night to the next when to

    I need to make a correction about Insat 2D -- just that I observed the
    four 
    flashes from San Antonio, not Austin, Texas.
