UARS went nearly directly overhead in NorthWest Minnesota. You can tell it was rotating because the lighting on it would fade in and out.. You couldn't pick it out for about 20 seconds and then it would brighten up again so you could easily see it. You can tell in this image how it started to dim again. It came up from the SW and set in the NNE. This was taken around 9:55PM CST.
