    I was able to see GSTAR 1 (85-035A, 15677) again last night,
    4:19 to 4:27 August 24 UTC, flash period about 54.5 seconds.
    
    I found that Yuri 3B's (91-060A, 21668) "real" flash period
    seems to be about 367.7, so it's interesting that the 
    shorter intervals of about 73.5 and 147 seconds are 1/5 and 
    2/5!  What happened was that for the last 20 minutes though 
    I tried to see it every 73 seconds, the only flashes I saw 
    were every 367.7 seconds.  When I first looked there were 
    some 73.5 seconds apart, or I would not have seen it at all.

    33.65  3:14:19.44  +2?
    
    In spite of the conditions not being great due to scattered
    cloud and very high humidity, I was also able to see Gorizont
    23 (91-046A, 21533), whose brightest maxima aren't as bright 
    as those of Yuri 3B and GSTAR 1.
    
    Observed from E. Ney Museum grounds:  30.307N, 97.727W, 150m.
