    The other day I came across a message regarding 98002, which 
    I found in July 1998:
    
    http://www2.satellite.eu.org/seesat/Jul-1998/0413.html
    http://www2.satellite.eu.org/seesat/Aug-1998/0001.html
    
    Upon re-reading that message, it struck me that it seemed to 
    have significant similarities with 90007, which I found last
    June:
    
    http://www2.satellite.eu.org/seesat/Jun-2000/0370.html
    http://www2.satellite.eu.org/seesat/Oct-2000/0067.html
    
    Both exhibited a flash period of 40-some (now in October 
    slowed to 50-some) seconds with asymmetrical secondary maxima 
    with extra "sub-flashes" or sparkles, and the flash episode 
    for each is/was roughly five to ten or so minutes earlier 
    each night.
    
    Several more days of cloudy/rainy weather predicted here....
