what does "alert for a glimpse of"mean?

Everything, indeed, appeared to be on schedule. When the President dismounted the second time, the agents, though vigilant, avoided a show of force. He wanted to greet a group of nuns. He was always alert for a glimpse of Sisters, and it was a familiar scene. Only a tactless bodyguard would have intruded upon it.

    Since being seen/photographed interacting with a group of nuns is good publicity, the President always paid special attention when scanning a crowd of people to see if there were some nuns he could greet.
