    And lucky again. In between rainshowers it cleared long enough
    for observation of Superbird A. I started looking for it several 
    minutes early in order to catch the first flash. At the expected
    time I saw  and timed a faint flash just souyhwest of Procyon at
    RA=07:45 d=+4 degrees.
    I could follow it for just over 6 minutes. Yesterday I could see
    38 flashes, now just 34 (1 not timed afterwards). The sky was
    very clear with just a smaal cloudpatch after the 2nd flash.
