    Unless I was looking at the wrong object, 
    Meteor 1-17 (07274, 74-025A) was varying a 
    lot earlier tonight, from as bright as +3.0 to 
    invisible.  I wasn't expecting such behavior 
    and didn't get stopwatch clicks and wasn't able 
    to get a sense of how regular the variations 
    were.  The one PPAS report was steady, and I
    think so were the two obs I found that Russell
    Eberst reported.  I was observing from the Ney
    Museum site.
