     From Dan Laszlo, Fort Collins CO USA.  The shuttle eluded me on this 
    pass.  Projected elevation was 7 degrees at best and minimum range 
    around 250 miles.  Air was very transparent to the N, with clouds 
    intruding about 4 degrees from azimuth 20 degrees to 90 degrees.  
    Scanning with handheld 10x30 binoculars yielded an eastbound airliner 
    around pass time at 3 degrees elevation.  I listened for a boom, about 
    10 minutes post pass, negative also.  A couple inopportune autos could 
    have prevented detection.  DL
