    Hi all,
    
    Only one out of the three obtained Nanosail-D images of tonight yields usefull 
    results, as the other two have completely saturated trails (satellite too 
    bright- visually it was clearly variable at that time though).
    
    The flash period on this image is irregular, but two flash intervals pop up 
    repeatedly: ~0.52s and ~1.0s
