Thursday evening local (early 15 October UTC) I observed 
Iridium 85 (98-66C, 25529).  Its flashing was very 
complex, and I had a difficult time making much sense of 
the times (from 0.13 to 6.23 seconds, with several of 
four or five seconds).  The best I could come up with to 
fit the times I had was a period of possibly about 10.7 
seconds.

Friday evening due to a meeting, the only one I saw was
Superbird A afterwards.  Is it just me or are its flashes 
not quite as bright as when it was first discovered?
