    Your first flash today is close to 179 * 430 seconds after the first 
    yesterday.
    The 2nd one (about 2.5 periods later) is indeed closer to 181.5 periods 
    after,
    and would make the period = 431.05 sec if rounded to 181
    - probably far enough from yesterdays estimate.
    (But such a slow spinner could also change its period enough)
    
    Adopting 179 for the first flash, I get 429.81 sec
    
    Spreadsheet copy:
