    I  would be interested to  learn if you or other SeeSat-L members 
    were more  successful in  witnessing either event that  I.

    I can now  answer my own question!    :/
    
    At around 3:30 a.m. I  finally saw it through the 7x35 binoculars. It finally 
    appeared as a third  magnitude small comet with the tail pointing west. It 
    was moving very slowly and  it was heading toward the star Cursa (Beta Eridani). 
    It was sure a naked eye  fuzzy little star.
    
    Then at 3:40 a.m. it spread out and  disappeared.
    
    So I did not see the burn . . . but the fuel dump was indeed  visible, albeit 
    about 10 minutes late.
