%N Numbers n such that n in ternary representation (A007089) has a block of exactly a prime number of consecutive zeros.

%C Related to the Baum-Sweet sequence, but ternary rather than binary and prime rather than odd.

%F a(n) is in this sequence iff n (base 3) = A007089(n) has a block (not a sub-block) of a prime number (A000040) of consecutive zeros.

%e a(1) = 9 because 9 (base 3) = 100, which has a block of 2 zeros.

%e a(2) = 18 because 18 (base 3) = 200, which has a block of 2 zeros.

%e a(3) = 27 because 27 (base 3) = 1000, which has a block of 3 zeros.

%e 81 is not in this sequence because 81 (base 3) = 10000 has a block of 4 consecutive zeros and it does not matter that this has sub-blocks with 2 or 3 consecutive zeros because sub-blocks do not count here.

%e 243 is in this sequence because 243 (base 3) = 100000, which has a block of 5 zeros.

%e 252 is in this sequence because 252 (base 3) = 100100 which has two blocks of 2 consecutive zeros, but we do not require there to be only one such prime-zeros block.

%e 2187 is in this sequence because 2187 (base 3) = 10000000, which has a block of 7 zeros.
