    I made the following timings of the brighter flashes from 89-41A,
    Superbird A, this morning, 2000 August 25.  They weren't very bright in
    20x80 binocs, and I would guess that none of them were naked eye in a
    rather misty sky.
    
    Times in UT.  No correction applied for reaction time.
    03:18:18.79
    03:18:41.71
    03:19:04.60
    03:19:27.56
    03:20:02.00
    03:20:24.86
    03:20:47.82
    03:21:33.64
    
    It looks as if the phase change may have been a little sooner than
    predicted, at 03:19.7, but it was hard to concentrate at that unearthly
    hour of the morning.
    
    Last flashes were timed at
    03:23:16.94 and
    03:23:28.42, when they were getting quite faint.
    
    Overall period (check my sums please) 11s.468 +/- 0.005
    
    Best wishes,
    David.
