Hi All;

An Ariane 5 ECA rocket is scheduled to launch te Eutelsat 8 West B and
Intelsat 34 GEO satellites today 2015/8/20 at 20:10 UTC,

This elset is for just after spacecraft separation, at T+28 minutes aprox.:


ARIANE 5 ECA                                           269 X 35815 km
1 70001U 15501A   15232.94306713 0.00000000  00000-0  00000+0 0    08
2 70001   4.7002  97.1496 7277943 178.0445  73.4890  2.27572449    00

Exact orbital inclination is unknown. Hoewer, this should not be a problem
to locate it via (radio tracking?) or optically.

Good luck!


Jon.
