    Using the following approximate derived central coordinates:
          Flash RA Dec
    
          2000-04-17 05:25 GS0417 08:25 2
          2000-04-19 03:33 SLL0419 06:38 2.9
          2000-04-19 03:43 RGL0419 06:40 2.2
          2002-06-23 05:32 Ed0623 20:16 -14.8
          2001-09-14 02:23 Ed0914 17:40 -12.3
          2001-09-17 03:00 Ed0917 17:23 -11.6
    
    
    I get a cone angle of 97 degrees, now centered on 19:21 62.9879 -4.63888
    2002-09-11 04:00
    
    (RA Dec Prec h/yr until)
    
    This axis will have it flashing near RA 22:30 Dec -14.5 today for 30.3N, 97.9W
    Ten degrees further N moves the flash -20 min, -1.3 deg.
    Ten degrees further E adds 1.3 min (time UTC 05:25)
    One day later adds 1.2 min RA, +20 min UTC
