The DMSP payloads have a "scanning platform" that apparently
rotates back and forth every 2 seconds.  So any operational
payload should show a 2 second period.

Amazingly enough, I just checked the spacing between flashes..

I caught 9 flashes, and each flash is *exactly* 57 video frames apart..

57 x 0.033s = 1.881s.. 

I am surprised it is like clockwork..


PS.. So Ill assume this info isn't needed and I'll just report a couple points from the pass and move on.. Thanks..
