We saw it go dark and then light back up, but couldn't make out any kind of separation (we're about 60 miles south of you). But we're also in a very light polluted area.

Us too, but I knew what happened. We could see something bright fall for a second, then the second stage light off. My wife thought we would never see it as we are so far away. Anyway, I had my Night Vision scope ready at that point. I wanted to see how long I could track it.

Wallops is doing another evening launch.

"Next Launch: Minotaur I, Nov. 19
A Minotaur I rocket carrying the DOD's Operationally Response Space-3 mission is set to launch Nov. 19 from Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport Pad 0B here. The window for launch is 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. EST."

Looks like it is going to the east so it won't be visible for as long as the last one, but it looks like it will be visible from further away so they are going for a higher orbit I assume. The Mariner Avoidance Map shows three splash down regions so I guess it is a three stage device.
