    Despite a hazy full moon-lit sky, I just saw OTV2-1 (37375 = 11-010A) as
    it passed
    above Antares at about magnitude 4.8 (but varying slightly and rapidly). 
    While not
    at all a very precise timing, it was some 5 seconds early (relative to
    predicions using
    the TLE with epoch 11078.45516260).  This observation was 2011 March 20
    09:54:53 UTC (+/- 1-2 seconds).
    
    Clear and dark skies!
