    Hi folks:
    
      94-68A IRS P2
       Found this object by accident - it left two frames separated by 12 
    sec+. I was puzzled why the long gap between flashes.The ID was done 
    using skymap.
    
       The composite two frames summation is available in the following link 
    just posted.  A  short WMV video file shows the 2nd brighter intense 
    flash ( marked as pos 2) in the image..

    What is IRS P2 acutally - is this a cylinder shape or what structure?
