Complete message (I hope) below.  The hypertext archives program which I
frequently use in reading SeeSat likes to cut off the first line.  I start
typing in the second line.  Either I forgot, or it enjoys cutting off more
than the first line.  So here goes again:
at 39 degrees at 18:22 PST Dec. 22 (02:22 UTC Dec.23).  I looked but never
saw it at all even after scanning around with 7x50 binoculars.  The sky was
very clear with a considerable number of stars visible even with the full
moon.  I'm not the most expert observer but neither am I a total klutz.
I've seen plenty of satellites.  A very stealthy mission if you ask me!
Maybe the DOD should be taking notes.
