    I used 11x80 binoculars to observe the location of the Centaur for the entire
    duration of its final burn, but I saw only stars. The sky was clear.
    I observed off an on for more than 1 h after payload separation, mostly using
    11x80's, but saw no sign of the propellant dump.
    Clouds are rolling in, so I have quit observing after one last look, on 2001

    I found confirmation on Spaceflight Now that a dump was planned, but I have no
    idea of the time.
