I decided to look at this object again to see
if there was a fundamental flaw in my previous
flash interval observations.   There were clouds
around the observing location so I just scanned
and picked up what "may" have been Hitomi.

The problem is that instead of the normal set of
three quick flashes were relatively rapid single
flashes.

Multiple sets of ten yielded a 0.65 second flash
interval.  At times there may have been a very
quick double flash but that is not confirmed.

0.65 second is one half of the 1.30 second interval
measured by Derek Kuhl and one fourth of my possible
2.60 second interval.

I have not checked to see if there was another satellite
at the same approximate location and path and time.
