    Decayed before it got here.
    
    Was watching just in case as I wasn't home and didn't have access to 
    Space-Track at the time, but nothing to see!

    As mentioned in passing in another thread the Soyuz R/B (36130) from the
    latest Progress launch is due to decay within less than 12 hours.
    
    We have a near overhead daylight pass at 0615 UTC (1915 local) which at this
    stage is certainly within the possible timeframe for decay so it is
    recommended that New Zealanders follow predictions on Space-Track and Calsky
    closely and be on standby if the possibility of decay near here remains. It
    would appear almost directly overhead for Christchurch and at this stage it
    is predicted to cross the sun for Dunedin observers.
    
    The next pass is to the Northwest of New Zealand but if decay occurs it
    would only be visible to those in that area with an unobstructed view for
    low passes.
