    If you, and/or others at different lat/longs, can give more accurate times 
    of the start+end
    of brightest flashes (even better: RA/dec), or over a period of several 
    days,
    I should be able to determine how the flash geometry varies with lat/long/date, and
    eventually the rotation axis and flash surface orientation.
    
    Oddly enough "your" passes were also close to alp Her from my location 18.6
    E, 59.2N
    (from Jul 7 06:11 to Jul 15 05:36 within 0.5 degrees), but at that time 
    I have
    brilliant daylight, and 12h earlier the Sun is also far from setting.
