    This morning I was able to observe this decaying object for 299 seconds. I
    established a clear rotation period of 75 seconds based on several cycles.
    Observation was accomplished from my normal site in Clear Lake City, Texas
    with 150mm binocular at a range of 3700 km  ( 2300 miles ) varying from 9.0
    to about 11 magnitude. I truly did not expect to see it given prior attempts
    with other aux motors of this type. 
    
    Thanks very much to those who offered to try to observe it.
    
    Paul
