    Hi All,
    If Early Bird R/B (#25124, 97085B) should survive the pass
    over India tomorrow, the next decending leg will take the
    rocket body over North America from the Hudson Bay and
    western Ontario, over the central United States from Minnesota
    (near International Falls) at ~12:02pm CST to McAllen, Texas,
    at ~12:07pm CST.  Major U.S. cities that are not far from
    the ground track line are Minneapolis/St. Paul, Des Moines,
    Topeka, Tulsa, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Waco, Austin, San Antonio
    and Corpus Christi.  Ed:  this is nearly a zenith pass for
    I'll be monitoring the orbit of this satellite closely
    over the next half-day or so because the NEXT orbit after
    the central-U.S. pass is a zenith pass over Los Angeles!
    Too bad these are daytime passes... --Rob
