Thanks to Edward Light's Obs, I decided to try it. I live at 39 deg N
and seldom try low inclination shuttle flights.  But to my surprise
there was a 20 deg pass tonight.

I saw it with binoculars.  Probably would have missed it naked eye
because it was dim.

This is hardly a unique obs but it was for me.  Guess I should never
ASSUME that something can't be seen...and use binoculars just in case.
