    STARSHINE has been observed last night and it may be spinning up. Here is
    the report from George Varros.
    "I had a 72 degree high pass two hours ago. It was
    pretty cool.  I video taped it and have 10 flashes!
    There were two groups of two flashes 1/1/2 seconds apart.
    A few flashes occur with Jupiter in the FOV for a good
    light comparison.
