Don't know if a single data point will help anyone, but I spotted TiPS over
Calgary, Alberta, this morning just about bang on time using the elset dated
This point is very near to Mizar and Alcor in Ursa Major.

Using 7x50 binocs I noticed no flashing, just two closely spaced objects in
a line oriented exactly in their direction of motion. Objects looked 7th mag
to me. Will use 11x80 binocs next time.
