    Succes !!
    
    Thanks to Bjorn's calculations I observed 89-41 A, Superbird A, this 
    morning.
    A few minutes earlier than predicted. Saw one flash before the first timing.
    So it started perhaps already before 03:22:19 UT.
    Could just see it naked eye halfway, hence the 2 period timing.
