Just managed to see the TiPS go by for the first
time. It showed up exactly as predicted by SatTrack
at 8:45 PM Dallas time, Friday Sept 27. It was VERY
faint, visible only through 7X50 binoculars (hand
held and shakey). Many thanks to those who sent
me the elements which allowed this prediction.
Unfortunately, there was a full moon and I am east
of the Dallas metroplex and thus staring at all
their light polution. I will strive to catch this one
when conditions are more favorable for viewing.
