     While waiting/adapting, clouds moved in the opposite direction to the 
     satellite's, but I hadn't quite memorized the location of penumbral 
     exit, so I was afraid to fight the advancing clouds.
     Yet, I did see the satellite briefly, and near my target star (now 
     obscured by the clouds) USA 224 gave me a typical KH flash!
     Hence the inaccurate position.
    
     Observations are, as I always do, reported in IOD format:

     Equipment: Stopwatch 100 (80) lap times, speaking clock 1ms accuracy
     but now via cell phone. Cheap binocular 10 (7)x 50
