    The rocket was spun up before separation, so when we manage to find it it 
    could  be flashing.
    
    The rocket was also going to be moved to a different orbit from the sat some 
    time after separation.
    
    A challenge for the tracking experts.    As Worldview is in  a relatively 
    low polar orbit could be a good one to see.
    
    Any chance of someone coming up with tracking TLE's or at least an 
    indication of possible locations where it would be visible for the next few 
    days?
