    The Orion 3 (25727) pass from last night -- several of the 
    flashes were at least +0.  The range was about 2900 km, so
    these weren't monster flashes.  Mostly both the primary and 
    secondary maxima were visible (i.e., every 9.15 seconds).

    For those who like very fast flashers, don't miss the Feng 
    Yun 1D Rk (02-024C, 27432).  To me it seemed like it was 
    flash-flash-flash-miss every 1.1 second.  It's so fast that
    I have a hard time even counting the flashes.
    
    The Meteor 3M-1 Rk (01-056F, 27006) flashes right at once
    per second and is bright -- it's a nice one.
    
    Observing site was BCRC: 30.315N, 97.866W, 280m.
