Iridium 44 one-power flashes last night (2001 Sept 3 UTC):

2:06:32.0 -1
2:06:54.8 -3
2:07:06.6 faint
2:07:18.0 faint
2:07:28.4 faint, first of very quick triple flash
2:07:29.3 faint
2:07:29.8 brightest of triple
2:07:52.6 faint

Faint ones were maybe +3.5 or so, maybe slightly brighter, 
under full Moon.

Location: 30.315N, 97.866W, 280m

The times are rounded and really within +/- 0.5 second -- 
still trying to adapt to my new and somewhat problematic 
Sportline Elite 570 stopwatch (hurry-up purchase at
Academy; "haste maketh waste").  It has a large two-line
display, but only 6 places -- okay for less than one hour 
but harder to use beyond that; has "runs", but those 
require learning how to use them; all in all, quite 
different from and, IMO, harder to use than their Alpha 
470, version 2.0.
