    Last night (Feb 3) I observed ETS-6 from 9:06 EST at delta Ceti until
    about 9:30 (2:06-2:30 UT).  It began 1x power flashes at mag3 or mag2
    maybe brighter about every 10 sec with much less intense flashes
    about every 2  seconds from delta Ceti until about halfway  between
    delta Ceti and omega Eridani.  I stopped seeing bright "unaided-eye"
    flashes at about 2:14 UT.  I watched it in the scope as it passed
    through Orion, flashing all the way, but nothing spectacular.  I believe
    it was to pass into eclipse at 2:52 UT.
    So as you observed and posted a few weeks ago (and now I reveal that I 
    at that very same moment on Jan 7 had also been watching, but did not
    post) it seems to be doing its flashes well ahead of eclipse, then
