I saw the SL-16 rocket last night!  Made my first satellite flash timings.

Saw 200 (precisely) flashes in 2:01.69, or 121.69 seconds.  That translates 
into 0.60845 seconds per flash.  I give myself a total, liberal, accuracy of 
+/- 5 seconds.  How to I plug that in into the flash period; how accurate is 
the timed flash period, assuming my very liberal accuracy?

I know 5 seconds sounds wild, but I just don't know exactly how close I was.  
As low at 0.6 seonds, total though.  Probably more like a total of 2 or 3 
seconds.

Everyone else, this is the satellite to see!!
