Although the skies in Austin were mostly cloudy last Friday night, I
did have a 40+ degree band of clear sky running east-west and centered
directly overhead.  Despite it being predicted to be passing through
shadow, I looked for Cosmos 2326 between 7:35 PM CST and 7:45 PM CST
(312.0659722 - 312.0729167) hoping that perhaps there would be enough
heating for a glow or even faint trail to be visible.  I saw nothing.

For whatever a negative report is worth,
