Tonight I spotted my bucket list satellite, Vanguard 2 rocket 1959-001B. 
Using Heavens Above it passed near Epsilon Pegasus tonight at 00:26.20 UTC.

The small rocket was in a roughly 2 second tumble and a bit above 7th 
magnitude.

Using my 5" F5 "Apogee" scope and 2" Erfle eyepiece.

I'm located in the middle of Fayetteville Arkansas.
