Was anyone on the East Coast of the U.S.A. able to view
Interball (Prognoz-M2) 23632 last night?  My program
predicted viewing after 01:07 UTC Aug 22 (21:07 EDT, Aug 21)
in the Southern sky.  Here in Maryland the sky was back to
its normal hazy, high humidity conditions, so viewing was
not great.  In fact I did not see one other sat while
scanning the expected track with a set of 7X50 binoculars.
I had hope to confirm the accuracy of my program for highly
elliptical orbits. The latest epoch I had was 95222.61**
