COMMENTS

"Positions" are counted 0,1,2,3,... starting with the least significant digit.
I.e., look for increasing number of nonzero digits after the rightmost digit '0'.  M. F. Hasler, Jun 21 2018

EXAMPLE

From M. F. Hasler, Jun 21 2018: (Start)
2^10 = 1024 is the first power of 2 to have a digit '0', which is the third digit from the right, i.e., it has to its right no digit '0' and two nonzero digits.
2^20 = 1048576 is the next larger power with a digit '0' having to its right no digit '0' and more (namely 5) nonzero digits than the above 1024.
After 2^46 = 70368744177664 there is 2^52 = 4503599627370496 having a '0' further to the left, but this digit has another '0' to its right and therefore cannot be considered: The next term having more nonzero digits after its rightmost '0' is only 2^68. (End)
