    The last two evenings I observed the same asymmetry on 
    the early pass in the east, but not on the later pass
    in the west.  The three quick flashes were very distinct
    last night.  For six cycles I timed trying to get the
    entire pattern, I got 2.55, 2.75, 2.59, 2.73, 2.63, and
    2.77 seconds.  On the later pass, I got four sets of 10 
    (or 5) cycles as 13.18, 13.36, 13.36, and 13.33 seconds.
    PPAS report on that later pass (including a few more 
    single clicks):
    
    01-056 F 02-07-21 05:14:55   EC   64.0 0.3  48  1.33
    
    Observing site:  30.315N, 97.866W, 280m.
