    Good news = flash period is less then last time.

    Ya, only 2 seconds shorter, I'll take it. 
    
    Now to wait for a clear night again, to observe it again.
    
    Last night wasn't very good. At least I got to look at one of my favorite geo's, ie Milstar 6 ( 27711 ).
    
    Now to measure Optus B1 ( 22087 ) Soon out of view, as seen from my back yard, due to tree's.
