I've been wondering the same thought.

Not having an in depth knowledge of the hardware, could it be possible that
the beacon randomly turns on in this mode after coming out of eclipse?

I believe it's on a fifteen minute timer, but what triggers the timer? If
the bird's coming up randomly, could this beacon be turning on anyway?
