    earlier tonight, from about RA 23:50 to 00:15, roughly. 
    The brightest maxima may have been zero magnitude.  They
    were certainly brighter than Deneb and made beta Ceti (+2) 
    look dim.  Below are timings and rough magnitude estimates.  
    The first three were very bright also.  The last flash I 
    saw was about six minutes earlier than the last one the 
    previous night."
    I'd like to try from up here in Tulsa tonight since it will be clear. I
    presume you expect flashes 6 min earlier tonight also? Is there much of a
    correction due to latitude?
