    I attempted to observe the Soyuz R/B on a predicted near overhead shadow 
    entry pass due at 0712 UTC. I started observing ahead of time in view of its 
    being very close to decay (probably had one or maybe two orbits left before 
    decay, projected altitude around 155 km at time of pass.)
    Nothing seen, but no conclusions can be drawn from this (other than that it 
    did not decay near here) owing to the short duration before shadow entry and 
    some cloud in the area of interest in the sky (of course in accordance with 
    Murphy's law the sky had just cleared in the area of shadow and some cloud 
    remained in the area of illumination!)
