Here are 3 approximate (time no better than ~1 second) positions for what is
likely the Ariane 5 EPC r/b, measured from one of the images taken by Klaas
Jobse yesterday:


site:  Oostkapelle (NL), 51.5720 N, 3.5377 E, 1 m ASL

70002 17 999C   9999 G 20171212185620000 18 75 2051398+169650 85
70002 17 999C   9999 G 20171212185635000 18 75 2100094+202220 85

Very approximate orbit fitting these 3 points and launch at Kourou:
