Thanks to everyone for their postings. Last night I happened to be in
San Diego CA under broken cloud, about 90%-covered sky.

Didn't see a lot, except two nice greenish-white bright glows behind
clouds, azimuth ~260 degrees elevation ~15 degrees. This lasted from
about 6:59pm & slowly faded over a 30-50 second period; didn't seem to
move over that time period. The brighter one really lit up the local
clouds at first. Presumably the second stage.

Best, Mark
