Not X-37B but Ajisai (EGP) instead

    I went out tonight after 10 PM local time to see if I could catch a glimpse of the Secret Space Plane X-37B. To my disappointment the sky was far more cloudy than I noticed it was when in my driveway. Not to be deterred I still hoped that it would show itself in one of the small breaks between the patches of city illuminated puffs. I waited and watched with binoculars. I didn't see the plane, again. But I did pick up my favorite satellite of all, fortuitously I might add. It was Ajisai (EGP - International Designation Code: 1986-061-A) blinking away in the very area where I was looking for the space plane! That made up for the trip out of town and a delay in getting some badly needed shuteye.
