    hi chiayk ,
    
    In the PPAS entry 
    92- 85 A 00-12-18            MM                 4.40  fl+5,smlowinsouthWOW
    Mike McCants allready mentioned "smlowinsouth".  "sm" is the code for
    secundary
    maxima, meaning that there were flashes at 2.20 interval low in the South.
    
    your image which is now at
    http://nightevents.blogspot.com/2006/03/molniya-3-4392-085a.html
    
    clearly shows the same behaviour : from top to bottom we first see no
    secundary
    flashes, then they become visible and increase in brightness.
    Finally they are the same magnitude of the primary ones giving a half-period
    when measured at that time.
    
    A increase from 2.2 to 2.35 seems to be pretty reasonable for this type of
    objects.
    
    Only more obs can give the definite conclusion.
    
    regards,
    
    Kurt Jonckheere
