Last night Mike McCants and I saw Superbird A flashes from 3:32 UT
(29 Aug.) until 3:52, when it entered the shadow.  The flashes were 
a little fainter than the previous night, max. about mag 8.  There 
is a small correction to the flash timings I reported yesterday -- 
they are 11.3 and 12.0 seconds (instead of 11.4 and 12.0), totaling 
23.3 seconds.  Observing location was BCRC, Austin, Texas: 
30.314N, 97.866W, 284.4m (920 ft.)
