I thought I had seen one sighting report but I went back to the SeeSat 
archives at 
http://www.rzg.mpg.de/seesat/seesatindex.html
and couldn't find any sighting reports on PAMS-STU.

It is about the size of 30 gal. trash can, painted for visibility but I would 
think be extremely faint (Mag. 7?)

You can find TLEs on 23876 on various TLE sites such as as
http://oigsysop.atsc.allied.com   (OIG, look in 30 day TLE report)
http:/www.grove.net/~tkelso/   (T.KELSO, look in Master File)

It should be a challenging object to view.  Good luck.

Does anyone have any information about the PAMS-STU deployed
by STS-77? I believe it's expected to remain in orbit till next year.
Is it visible and if so are there any elements published for it?
TIA
