Hitomi A fragment observed and video made.  Flash pattern very different
from last night and similar to what Ron Lee was reporting.  Flashes came in
sets of three with a long space between.  Taking the set of three as one
flash, the flash period tonight is 2.62 sec.

Hitomi L observed visually but it was not detected reliably by my video
system.  Both A and L appeared very golden visually. I did not time flashes
expecting video capture.  The period is regular and much longer than A
fragment.

Anyone have any recommendations for a better/more sensitive video system
for satellites?  I am using a PC-164EX with a 16mm f1.4 lens attached a
mini DVR recorder.
