    Hi Jim,
    I forgot to mention the bluish cloud -- yes it was quite
    evident after burnout, even in light-polluted skies.  Wish
    I had stayed out longer to see the final burn -- after what
    I assumed was the 2nd stage cutoff (or possibly the 3rd?)
    at 3:07, I wasn't expecting anything else.  I went back
    inside at ~3:10.
    There seemed to be a very short staging event about 1 minute
    into the flight -- kind of a "chuff".  Did you see this?  About
    2 minutes into the flight there was a definite staging; the
    plume disappeared for at least 5-10 seconds.  --Rob
