    Cosmos 2282 continues to increase in flash rate. Its flash rate is 
    0.44 seconds faster than observed on 8 February.
    Previously reported:

    Also unusual was that the flashing stopped after the last observed

    CZ-3A R/B:
    I saw some variation in brightness in 94010C between +2.5 and +3.5 
    but the distinction was not sharp enought to report a flash period.
