    As Ed pointed out, I was watching apple again last night:)
    That's 4 nights in a row, and it looks like it's going to be clear again tonight:)
    I would say it reached mag 5 for a couple of flashes, and the rest seemed fainter. Basically I see
    nothing, a noticeable flash, then they seem to get brighter. Then it goes in the oposite
    direction, they get fainter then I no longer see it. Then awhile latter in the region of alp canis
    minor, not canis major as ed said, I again notice it flashing. I messed up my message I sent to
    ed. I tracked it all the way until shadow interface. So I saw flahing in the region of alp orion
    and beta cmi ( canis minor ). At least one's I noticed.
    I hope ed see the flashes. I guy 80 km to the west of me, is going to try and see it.
    Go apple go!
