    Hi all,
    It decayed on Nov. 1. I watched from home at 1x a predicted pass at 00:27
    UTC (Nov. 2) but saw nothing. It was an orbit later then the predicted
    reentry time I posted on my site on Oct. 31. Note that all predictions on my
    site come from Space Track. I only present them differently with more
    information about the object and a map. I do not make my own predictions.
