    Kevin,
    Nice video of this rapid flasher.
    
    I also noticed in my observations that 04-21 B is flashing with a high
    amplitude
    when passing from the north to south, but that the amplitude gets much
    lesser
    once past culmination and then it is practically impossible to time the
    flashes.
    Did you take the video in the southern part of the pass?
    
    I timed the flashes on the video and get over 10 flashes 7.82 sec, so a
    period of
    0.782 sec. This is in perfect match with my own obs.
    
    Greetings and clear, dark skies
