    I took a brief look with Alan's SatAna/SatEvo, and it appears the decay
    could be around noon Monday.
    Still visible from S.USA, but the last three orbits might be visible
    over Brazil, going NE.
    If it survives longer, it may pass in darkness over Koh Samui to s.tip of
    Vietnam, (far N of Singapore), then Cape Arnhem-Halifax Bay,
    next orbit S of Brisbane.
    Seems as if you may sleep longer, Greg.
