    In the last few sessions, Orion 3 (99-024A, 25727) has done at
    least a few very bright (-2 or -3 or maybe -4) flashes -- and 
    sometimes on two passes per session.  They have been mostly in
    the southwest.  One evening while watching Telstar 401 I was
    distracted by such flashes.  I didn't have any predictions for 
    it and only later I found they were Orion 3.  I believe that 
    its flash period is now 17.nn seconds, but secondary flashes 
    can be seen.
