    Globalstar was typically 6.0 mag except for a few 1.5 mag flashes around  
    00:22:00 UTC.
     
    The unknown/phantom surface of Superbird A was flashing around 7.5 mag when  
    I acquired it at 02:35 UTC.  The main show began at 03:08:58 UTC (after a  12 
    minute 38 second gap in the flashing) and ended at 03:19:55 UTC.  The  phase 
    shift was at 03:15 UTC.
