    Just as a note, we in Tulsa saw a double HST flare both Fri and Sat nights
    at the "9:25 ish" pass. But nothing last night, not even a good view of HST
    at 3rd magnitude. Did you see HST and the UNID? or was it a second flare of
    HST? I know I was pleasently surprised when I figured out it was the same
    I suggested to the Astronomy Club of Tulsa gathering that both nights the
    first (and brighter, -2 mag) flare seemed to be right when HST was due south
    of Comet Tempel, almost as if it was "looking at it". I think I saw some
    mention of this earlier on this list - coincidence?
