    Gap 3 min. to record times from watch, my neighbor Omar observed while I
    recorded the times and he noted that the flashes were getting brighter.

              51.47
     The double asterisks denote what appeared to be the brightest
     flashes of both series and the single asterisks indicate a
     flash brighter than the others except the double asterisks, odd
     that every other flash on this series was brighter than the ones
     in between?
