    About to come screaming to a halt.
    
    We had what was supposed to be a bright shadow exit pass around dawn (1900 
    UTC.)    Decay not expected at that stage as it was still around 180 km in 
    height.
    
    However conditions were extremely poor with cloud cover related to an 
    approaching snowstorm (expecting snow to the lowest level in this area for a 
    number of years!)
    
    So nothing seen.
    
    33507 also on the way down, but no passes of interest here (as if I would 
    see anything anyway!)
    
    At least I can console myself that this type of weather is often followed by 
    very clear winter skies though mist can be a problem.
