    On the sci.astro.satellites.visual-observe newsgroup 
    there's a report of an observation of Starshine 3 decay 
    from Minneapolis, Minnesota, by Scott Armitage.  It 
    appears to have been posted at 4:01 January 21 UTC.
    I saw a dozen satellites from outside my office last 
    night, no binocs.  It was cold (for here).  This is our 
    coldest night of the season, lower than -2 celsius now.  
    (I really don't know how people can stand to observe in 
    truly cold countries!  But I recently read a report of 
    someone observing Quadrantid meteors in far northern 
    Canada.  Brrr!)
    I'm hoping to see Space Shuttle in about 30 minutes.  I 
    was pretty disappointed to find out that I had managed 
    to use an erroneous elset for those evening predictions 
    I got the other day.  I don't peruse elsets before using 
    them to get predictions.  I hope that doesn't become a 
    frequent necessity!
