    Was completely clouded out yesterday so nil observations.
    Tonight was the same but I happened to check the sky a few
    minutes before expected pass of X37B and conditions were 
    possible but not enough time to setup equipment so just very
    approximate observations with binoculars.
    X37B appears to be running at least a minute earlier and even
    perhaps as much as a minute and a half early. I saw it naked
    eye then in binoculars and watched it go into earths shadow
    The prediction was 19h15mUT az 318 el 26 using Teds 
    last element set element.
    Must stress NOT at all an accurate observation but at least it
    shows X37B running quite a bit early.
