I've been putting some serious thought into this, your scheme to alternate the phase was very elegant. Looking at it, it can work for 4 LEDs too. I think you have created a new section for my LEDs article, called waves. :D

Remember, you control the count number of the 4017 by tying the first unused output to reset. So if you want 3 LEDs to be 120° out of phase instead of 180° you have to go with something like this:

BRB, really am in the middle of drawing this time.

I think if you add two "Teal/aqua" (halfway between blue and green) colored LEDs into the mix, it will be extremely realistic.

What you have looks good now, and the thank you video is AWESOME! :D

I was working on this when I realized I was taking the hard route, too many parts with no real gain. I'm going to start from scratch, and come up with a 3 LED and 4 LED wave.
