Just saw the newest Orbcomms (#24575-24582) in the 02:23 to 02:25 UT
(25 Sep 98) timeframe.  Used an 8" telescope. estimated magnitude 8-9.
It appeared that the brightness on some varied but the visibility
duration for each was at best two seconds so this may have been due to
others reasons than a real variation in brightness.
