The unid flasher seen by me on Sept 30 UT was again seen Oct 1. At the
time, I was observing Lacrosse 2 #21147 when I noticed the unid just
behind it. Lacrosse 2 was almost following the identical track of the
unid the night before and passed through the sting of Scorpio at almost
the identical spot. About 10-15 degrees behind Lacrosse 2 was the
flasher travelling slightly slower and four degrees higher (east) of
Lacrosse 2. It appears the unid was about 4 deg's east of its first seen
track and about 10 minutes or so earlier.
The flash rate was still extremely fast but probably closer to 4 per
second at mag2.5  .
I haven't seen any mail (if any) on this object yet, but I will attempt
to gain a more accurate fix to-night. Its inclination may have been
slightly more east (5-10 deg) than Lacrosse 2.
