    May well be (I haven't checked any elements).  NOAAs are notorious for
    bright glints, including rather rapid double glints.  See, e.g.,
    http://www2.satellite.eu.org/seesat/Mar-1998/0227.html for a rather
    nice report by Ed Cannon which includes a provocative question or
    http://www2.satellite.eu.org/flash/102/node17.html for an earlier
    report from me when I was more confused about the flashing behavior of the
    NOAAs. 
    
    If that doesn't satisfy your thirst, try the search 
    noaa double seesat
    at http://www.google.com, for dozens of links.
    
    Speaking of flashing, Christian Ackermann, if you are reading this, the
    data you report for Okean-O R/B 25861 (99-39B) would be excellent for the
    PPAS, http://www2.satellite.eu.org/ppas/ppas8.html, where such OBS are
    tabulated by the tens of thousands into a valuable research trove.
    
    Cheers.

    Did you know?:
    If you are a minute early, you will see it.
    If you are a minute late, you will not.
