    Last night (2000 Jan 17 UTC) there were again two separate 
    one-power flash episodes of 94-56A, 23230, ETS 6.  
    
     eight maxima - from 3:16:23.1 to 3:17:42.0
     13.25 maxima - from 3:26:26.8 to 3:28:45.2
    
    In the second group, after a few primary maxima I saw and 
    clicked on a secondary maximum at a quarter cycle, but 
    all of the subsequent brighter maxima of the group were 
    "in synch" with that secondary.  Is this a phase shift?
    
    Location:  30.307N, 97.727W, 150m
    
    First timed binocular flash 3:08:43.4
    Last timed binocular flash 3:39:05.8
    
    30:22.4 minutes or 1822.4 seconds total elapsed time
    
    I have the possibly interesting problem that, since I 
    didn't watch it continuously in binoculars, there are 
    gaps in my timings -- and they don't fit into a neat 
    time sequence.  That is, for example, the time from the 
    last binocular timing of the first group to the first 
    one-power flash seems to be about 22.75 flash periods 
    (using about 11.28 seconds for the period, based on 
    more than 40 individually timed maxima ).  Then from 
    the last flash of the first one-power group to the 
    first one of the second one-power group seems to be 
    46.5 maxima.  
    
    So anyway, based on the average of times of individual 
    maxima the period is about 11.28, but when I divide 
    the duration from the first to last flash timed with 
    binoculars, I get about 161.5 flash periods.  Can that 
    be done in PPAS format?
