    Leo, maybe you will easily ID this one later.  Where I am at 
    the moment I'm not set up to try to ID this, but it seems 
    certain not to be Superbird A.  You mentioned its different 
    characteristics.  It also seems like it was visible for much 
    too long of a time, as Superbird A is usually only seen for 
    six or seven minutes, but you timed this one for over 20 
    minutes.  Known ones that I think of as possibilities are 
    TDF 1 (19621, 88-098A), TDF 2 (20705, 90-063A), Intelsat 512 
    (16101, 85-087A), Apple (12545, 81-057B), and Cosmos 2282 
    (23168, 94-038A) because of their fairly short flash periods.
