    Spacenet 2 (15385, 84-114A)  was flashing rather brilliantly last night. I 
    watched for over half an hour between 4:30 and 5:06 UTC.  The flash period 
    has increased from 96.4 to 102.34 since Ed last reported on it (in PPAS 
    format) in December of 2002.  I don't know when it began flashing, as it 
    was already flashing brightly at 4:30 when I looked for it, and was still 
    rather bright at 5:06.  One thing that I noted was that alternate flashes 
    were not of equal brightness, but about a magnitude different.  I'd 
    estimate that the brightest flash was close to mag. 4.
    
    More info on its flash behavior can be found in a couple of Ed's previous 
    posts.
