Cosmos 100 Rk (01884, 65106B) gave some sharp, irregular flashes this evening 
during a pass at 00:10 UTC, 1 October (270az, 38el).  The flashes and 
brightness variations were irregular but on the order of 25 seconds apart. 
Ppas8  obs indicate some brightness variation but no regular flashing.

Superbird A flashes were centered around 03:32:30 UTC 1 October.  In PPAS 
format
I report the portion of the flashing where I could observe both the primary 
and the secondary flashes.
