    Orbit for object from today's space x launch, is now on space track
    
    Catalog number = 36595
    
    As for seeing it, the conditions are bad. It was placed into a orbit, with a low orbital height. The orbital inclination is only 34 degrees, so alot of people are out of luck. 
    
    Will be nice, when they launch the dragon space craft, into the 51 degree orbit, so more people can see it.
