    Clouds prevented observations on March 04/05 before shadow ingress.
    I found it 3 minutes after shadow egress (00:14) with mag 10.6 steady (00:17).
    
    At about 00:21 UTC the first flash to mag 9 appeared.
    Following flashes were brighter and reached about mag 6.
    Last flash (mag 9 again) was about 00:24 UTC.
    
    Flash timings:
    
    Flash 3  00:21:39.86 UTC
    Flash 4  00:21:49.80
    Flash 5  00:21:59.65
    Flash 6  00:22:09.62
    Flash 9  00:22:39.21
    
    Flash period 9.89 seconds
