South Africa (Willie Koorts) may have the new Iridium rise only two
degrees over the eastern horizon on the first orbit, at 01:33 UT Aug 20.

On the next orbit, very favourable 60 degrees in the east at 03:11

On Aug. 21, the passes will already  be partly in shadow, as they will
when Australians get their first chance.
