The X37-B is up there somewhere...

Or, at least that is what Spaceflight Now is reporting.
T+plus 19 minutes, 58 seconds. SPACECRAFT SEPARATION! The Centaur upper stage has deployed the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle following today's launch from Cape Canaveral. 
Besides the fact that I was otherwise occupied, I had no great interest in following this in real-time.  All  the best stuff should occur after the flight status reports stopped.  As for a video of a mere Atlas launch, I'd rather watch/re-watch videos from Red Glare 8.  Jaded, am I?

All that's left is to 'listen' for reports from amateur sat-watchers.
