I didn't see your decay note until this morning, but fortunately Pierre
helpfully left accurate predictions on my answerphone at home yesterday
evening.  The sky was hazy but reasonably free of cloud.  At elevation
about 22 degrees in the west, 99-32C was mag 0.  It was 6 seconds late
on this elset.

I got an accurate position 6' above 27 Vir:
1999 July 12  21:59:12.26 UT  12:41.8 +10:31 (2000.0)

Cheers,
David.
