    A higher SE pass confirmed the period AND the asymmetry.
    I observed it for about 112 seconds from 21:04:38 UTC, and the best fit
    period for the deep minima was 13.52 seconds. The shallow minima had a large
    spread, but were about 5.5 +-1 BEFORE the deep minima.
    
    Laps:
    4.34,7.62,6.22,7.00,6.30,6.81,6.98,5.86,7.11,7.72,5.86,22.58,3.99,5.94,8.28
    
    At 21:07:55 +- 5 s. I saw a single mag +4 flash at RA 22:46.5, decl.+22.5
    (2000)
    
    At 21:13:00 +-0.5 USA 116 passed 0.5 deg. below gam Peg and crossed the 7x50
    FOV in the proper time and direction, after which I lost it (mag +7?!)
    
    USA 129 has been impossible at my latitude since the maneouvres.
