    There was a definite brightness variation which I havent noticed before,
    brightest mag 6, faintest mag 6.5 or 7. There were about 3 cycles of it between the 
    two positions so i state period about 30 seconds.
    Due to the observations being conducted in bright twilight the geometry is
    probably is at an extreme. Mag 7.5 stars couldnt be seen due to the bright
    twilight.
