COMMENTS

Digits are all in {0,1,2,3,4} after the first term.

The upper limit is A158624, 0.5265679578796997657885576975995789586775656...

EXAMPLE

5^3 = 125 so the backward value is 0.521, 5^10 = 9765625, so backward value is 0.5265679. The lower limit of all values is a constant, which appears to be 0.521302330431131124210313300023141021034302...

From N. J. A. Sloane, May 11 2018 (Start)

To describe this another way:  write down the decimal expansion of powers of 5:

1

5

25

125

625

3125

...

keep going forever.

Write them backwards:

1

5

52

526

5213

...

After a while the beginning digits are all the same.

That's the sequence. (End)
