    For any of you who may find this information useful towards
    prediction of flashes by Tele-X (19919/89-27A), following
    are the UTC times at which a flash was observed this past
    weekend.  Times are as synched with WWV and recorded and do
    not reflect error of plus/minus human reaction time.
    
    Observing location:
    30.3103 deg North by 97.8806 West by 920 feet elevation
    
    2000-08-26 04:06:35.26
    2000-08-26 04:09:47.75
    2000-08-26 04:13:00.80
    2000-08-26 04:18:13.92
    
    2000-08-27 ??:??:??.?? estimated mag +1 to  0 (missed click)
    2000-08-27 04:19:02.47 estimated mag +1 to  0
    2000-08-27 04:22:15.60 estimated mag +4 to +3
    2000-08-27 04:25:29.05 estimated mag +1 to  0
    2000-08-27 04:28:42.70 estimated mag +4 to +3
    2000-08-27 04:31:56.24 estimated mag +6 to +5
    
    The flashes observed 2000-08-26 (Friday night, local time)
    were apparently from the pre-phase-shift first grouping of
    flashes.  Ed Cannon and Mike McCants saw additional flashes
    from Tele-X that night, after a pause, during which I went
    on to other objects.  Perhaps Ed or Mike noted the times of
    the flashes in the second grouping and, unlike me that night,
    had the presence of mind to note their estimated magnitudes.
    
    The flashes observed 2000-08-27 (Saturday night, local time)
    were apparently from the post-phase-shift second grouping of
    flashes.  Ed Cannon and I both watched Tele-X for a good long
    while after the last flash noted above but never saw any more.
    The first observed flash, which I missed getting the time for,
    occurred after a few nominal flash periods went by without a
    flash, i.e., we apparently just missed seeing the tail end of
    the pre-phase-shift first grouping of flashes.
    
    A PPAS report will be filed separately in a day or two.
