    Using my GoogleMaps (that I post for asteroid occultations) I see that the
    runway at Vandenberg is oriented at 120 degrees / 300 degrees..
    >From the looks of the passes from the list Bjorn provided, and which caused
    me to reload my HeavensAbove account, it appears to me I have a good shot at
    seeing this... If it comes down in the timeframe suggested...
    Problem is, OTV-1 can fly, so they could bring it in on any pass with a
    simple turn..

    Use this link to get daylight (and shadow) passes too:
    A 72 degree pass today at 7:26 am PST, Dec.2 76 degrees at 02:44 am ... Six
    passes this week above 70 degrees
    The ground track is directly available by clicking the date.
