Observation Log 2/19/08: “USA 193” spy satellite flyover

Luck was not with me tonight. The cloud cover was about 95%, but a the few holes, moving quickly, might have given me a brief glimpse of this high, close pass. I’d gotten similarly lucky with the ISS before, but not this time. If the US Navy does not shoot down the satellite on Wednesday, perhaps I’ll have another chance on Thursday.

On the positive side, I’m delighted that friends and family have been in touch, asking how they might see some of the wonders in the sky!
