 blockquote, div.yahoo_quoted { margin-left: 0 !important; border-left:1px #715FFA solid !important; padding-left:1ex !important; background-color:white !important; } I had the field for USA 186 (28888) ready; even though it was bright twilight for me, I figured I would give it a shot. Just as it passed by the beak of the crow (Corvus), the alarm at the business about 100 feet from me went off, startling me, so I was unable to hit my stopwatch. It seem to be right about on time and track. 
My wife and I put in our earplugs (yes it's that loud) and waited. I had told her about the Cygnus undocking and we were keen to watch the pass. In the interim, low clouds moved in, but we did see ISS breaking free of them in the East and hoped to see its former tenant following soon after. By now the alarm had long before shut off, but then we saw flashlights shining on us and someone said "Sir put your hands up!"
We had to turn around and talk to the police and let them know that the owner of the business was right over there, but by that time any hope of seeing our target was gone. I packed up and called it a night.
Long time readers may remember this is not the first time this has happened; as irritating as it was tonight at least I didn't have to "assume the position" like the last time.
