The letter reports the discovery by the two Vela 5 satellites of 10 intense X-ray flares from the same region of the sky centered in the constellation Norma. The results were obtained from data records covering a 15-month period and which showed 20 count-rate enhancements at least 15 sigmas above the background level. It is noted that the observations are consistent with short X-ray bursts from a single object and that the most intense flare was 0.75 of the quiet-phase intensity of Sco X-1. The observed hardness ratios are found to vary considerably from event to event and to be significantly higher than the typical values observed for Sco X-1. It is suggested that if a single source is assumed and if the flares occur randomly in time, then flares of the type detected by the Vela satellites occur at least 30 times per year.
