    we had high clouds which became patchy enough for me to setup 
    at last minute and see above.  seemed about :02s late ref 3-day
    old elset.  wonder if that is related to the acceleration that David
    mentioned re 66A (or am I confused again? -- drag ~ early, 
    "accelerating" meant...?).  did not time flashes.
    meanwhile quicksat indicated a NE+25 pass of ISS & friends, but I did not
    really look for them due to clouds and my 'neighbor's' NE tree.
    (if he was neighborly, he would cut it down or at least trim it).
    forcing me to build an obs deck in a slightly new location, 
    figure out new coords, datum(s)... but hopefully worth the effort
    when I figure out how to carpenter.  
    after reading the reports, I should have looked NE and stood on
    my toes and looked for a hole in the clouds.
    meanwhile, tropical storm "C" (hurricane?) is headed in this general
    direction, although the wx forecast for tonight is clear, the calm
    before the storm?  better not put up obs deck till it passes...
    why does usspacecommand not publish TLE for this rocket, but
    it does for others like 01033B ??
