    Greetings:
    Last night (29 Jul 02) 00:37 UTC Meteor 3M Rk (27006U) passed within 3
    degrees to the north of Polaris heading east.  Jonathan Wojack was right on
    the money with the flash pattern being tied to the pass direction.  The
    eastern pass on the 28th was
    the wild flash pattern with phase shifting just as Jonathan said and last
    night on the 29th the pass was westerly, and I
    got the more tamed 1.18-1.62 second flash pattern.
    I recorded the following times: 1.39, 1.43, 1.49, 1.59, 1.22, 1.44, 1.34,
    1.22, 1.55, 1.41, 1.37, 1.40, 1.62, 1.25, 1.46, 1.32, 1.31, 1.46, 1.25,
    1.43, 1.28, 1.39, 1.52, 1.25, 1.53, 1.45, 1.41, 1.40, 1.32, 1.59, 1.23,
    1.18, 1.41, 1.55, 1.45, 1.38,  with an average of (1.28)
    Can someone explain this weird phenomenon?
