    I looked for, but did not see X-37B OTV 2-1 (11010A / 37375) on 2012 May 21 from 01:43 to 02:30 UTC. I used the 16.125
    rev/d search TLEs that I posted earlier. Predicted time of passage was between 01:53 and 02:08 UTC. I observed with my
    unaided eye at elevation near 50 deg. The sky was not fully dark, and there was a bit of haze, but there was a
    reasonable chance of spotting it, if present and at typical brightness.
