Saw 91-46A flashing last night from the backyard[34.97S,138.63E] with 7x50's
at 11:50UT Jan 23. Az 42, el 36 [from Trakstar]. Sharp flashes up
to maybe mag 4 , with nothing visible in between. Over the 10 minutes
I was looking the flashes were not of equal brightness but couldnt
detect a pattern.
By the time I took another look, all set up to measure period at 1300UT,
flashing was not visible. Will try again tonite and next few weeks.
