    Also tried to observed the launch from the San Jose, CA area (W121.977
    N37.272) and did not see anything.  Lighting was very favorable with very
    clear skies.  Launch vehicle should have traversed the western sky about 25
    degrees high in deep twilight (Sun -12.2 degrees).  Knew the launch occured
    via the Live Webcast, but did not see a thing naked-eye.  Too bad.  But glad
    they got the satellites up after such a long delay.
