    Try updated often.
    In general, if his page suggests that the decayer might be visible from
    your neck of the woods, go out 5-10 minutes early & keep looking around.
    For more precise stuff, get the TLEs that he provides, put them into
    software, and still go out 5 minutes early anyway!
    If a sat is still on orbit in darkness OR already decayed you see
    If it's on orbit and in sunlight you see it as you would see any sat,
    moving noticeably fast.
    If it's decaying you're lucky! It'll shine by its own light & be
    Best, Mark
