    We appear to have a good probability of seeing this object (which I guess 
    could be described as Cosmos 2420 rocket) at or near decay, provided it is 
    sufficiently heated to be visible when not illuminated by the sun.
    Calsky is predicting decay just before an "invisible"  pass here due at 0500 
    local (1700 UTC.)  Once again unfortunately this may be too short notice, 
    for which apologies as I was unable to post earlier owing to other 
    It is of course against the rules to quote the SpaceTrack prediction  in 
    here.  However it does confirm the need for observers to be on the alert in 
    this region.
    Aerospace Corp and Obsat do not show predictions for this object at the time 
    of writing.
