Woo Hoo!! My 8 yr old daughter has a friend sleeping over tonight so they came out to see if we could see it. I got my big azzed spotlight out of by boat bag to try to knock out a street light so we could see better, but didn't need too. Man, that sucker was bright!

Looked like a star cruising, I mean cruising across the sky untilit faded. Right on time and at about as exact coordinates as I could tell and for the same duration. It's amazing they can nail it like that!

Cool stuff. Thanks for posting; it was perfect timing.

We saw it too!!!
Passed over us in Orlando at 9:36 pm. Closest pass was 212 miles. Started at 48* above North West, peaked at 86* above the horizon, then departed at 31* above South East.
Sky was a bit overcast but it broke just long enough for us to see it. Boy, does that thing move across the sky!!!
We have another shot at it Tuesday night. Maybe the sky will be clear.
