    With the narrow, inclined cone the second event is
    07:33 RA, +7.3 dec at 04:26 UTC for 52.8N, 5.1E
    +0:04 RA, +0:07 time /10 deg E
    -0:42 RA, -0:41 time /10 deg S
    With the "90 deg cone" 06:26 RA, +7.5 dec at 03:19
    +0:00 RA, +0:05  time /10 deg E
    -0:44 RA, -0:42  time /10 deg S
    These estimates show that observations of two (rarely more)
    events, and from different latitudes, improve the determination
    of the axis and cone angle.
    Observations from different longitudes, or from one place over
    several weeks, have a good effect unless the orbit is nearly
    equatorial, or flashes occur near apex, or the Sun is near a
