    Observed a previously unreported geoflasher, found by Ron Welch
    of Canberra, and ID by Ed Cannon. This is aurora 2, 1991 37A.
    The shortest interval between flashes was 175.9 seconds, but
    there were both intervals (3) of twice this and three of 3 times
    the smallest. Thus rather undecided on period. 
    Rather a difficult object to observe with handheld binoculars
    for a hour, but i dont think i missed too many flashes. all I saw
    were strobe like and mag 2-3.
