Question trying to make astroids move down the screen in random places

i am trying to make movieclips come down the screen. I am making an astroids game, here is the code...


Code:
onClipEvent (load) {
	speedastroid = 2;
	
}
onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
	this._y += speedastroid;
	count = 1;
	while (count<2) {
		_root.astroid.duplicateMovieClip("astroids"+count, count);
		_root["astroids"+count]._x = random(650);
		_root["astroids"+count]._y += speedastroid;
		count += 1;
	}
	if (this._y>500) {
		this.removeMovieClip();
	}
}
so the astroid moves down the screen, but the random x corrdinate gets reset, so the astroid come down the screen and moves in differ places on the x axis. I want just one random number per astroid, i don;t want it getting reset on each frame.

can u plz help me

here is the link to see what i mean with the astroids.

Default

don't use onEnterFrame then cause that will change it every frame.
