    Here are two from early 2002, when its flash period was under 
    nine seconds:
    
    94- 56 A 02-02-12 04:55:51   EC  431.3 0.2  51  8.457 +1.5->inv
    94- 56 A 02-03-05 03:10:52   EC  241.7 0.2  29  8.33  
    
    The second one is previously unreported.  Ten of its flashes
    that night were visible without magnification, but I don't 
    have all of the notes at hand so am not sure how bright the
    brightest maxima were.  I think I don't have any obs of it
    between March and September 2002 nor any since then.
    
    Mike recovered 90004 (formerly 90907) a couple of nights ago,
    and it sure can be fun to watch, doing two or three maxima in
    five seconds plus at times some quicker "flickers".  It's 
    doing good southbound passes over North America (and South, I 
    think) right now.
