    Ed's analysis is pretty much spot-on.  (I sent a reply to
    Kevin directly with a map of tonite's flash location).  Peak
    flashes for southern California should occur at about 9:09pm
    PDT tonite, meaning flashes should be visible in binoculars
    from 9:06 to 9:12pm.  Flash location is about 10 degrees
    west of the nice Hydra pentagon, 30 degrees above the WSW
    horizon.  --Rob
