    Due my general incompetence in operating a stopwatch in the dark, I failed to 
    get precise times for the ETS-6 phase change.  Suffice it to say that the 1x 
    flashes began around 03:43:10 UTC 11 January.  The initial 1x flash was 
    followed 2.8 seconds later by a secondary flash. Basically it was the same 
    flash pattern reporter in my previous post:
    The flashes were approximately equal in brightness at ~03:45:10 UTC 11 Jan.  
    Both the primary and secondary flashes quickly faded aver the next 2 minutes.
    For the folks in the Baltimore-Washington area there is a great Mir pass 
    tomorrow.  The Mir will ascend below the Moon at 18:22, pass between Jupiter 
    and Saturn (165 az, 60el) at 18:25, pass through the Pleaides and enter 
    eclipse at 18:25:42.  As noted recently, the plot of the pass looks like that 
    of a decayer. [In the vernacular: It will be bookin']
