    I was *very* fortunate to make this observation.  After getting outside at
    3.15am and assembling my 8" telescope under a brilliantly clear sky, I
    waited for 83-60C setting in the NW leaving eclipse at 40 deg el.  It turned
    up 11 secs early after 80 days, mag about +10 steady.
    After I'd made one timing the satellite faded away into unexpected cloud,
    and a minute later the sky was overcast.
