    In a message dated 1/27/00 6:49:11 PM Eastern Standard Time, 
    << Of the objects launched from Vandenberg last evening (PST) I was only able 
     observe one object.  It was about a +4.5/5.0 mag >>
    At 7:50 PM EST tonight I just observed the same thing: only one object approx 
    mag 4.  The pass culminated about 40 degrees in the NW and I was using 10X50 
    binoculars, though I could even see it naked eye.  I panned ahead and behind 
    for other objects and could see none.  At one point I thought I saw a faint 
    object trailing, but never saw it again.  Anyone know what the one bright 
    object we're seeing must be?  I doubt the OCS is already inflated.  Perhaps 
    it is the Minotaur R/B.
