Time history of the CCD artifact resulting from overexposure on the 
west limb, 14-Apr-93. Acton_sensei points out that this is similar
to the effect noted on May 19, 1996. The location is very close; 
this time profile is from (456:459,500:*), whereas the plots for
the May 19 glitch were at (459:466,500:*). The decay time seems 
faster for this artifact. This also seemed to have been induced by
PFI shutter-open duty cycles above 60%, this time for support of the
NIXT rocket flight.
