    Hi all,
    
    We in Belgium and Netherlands like to try and observe Rosetta during its
    fly-by. Therefore we need positions of this spacecraft with respect to the
    starry sky and predicted for our specific locations. Who knows how to obtain
    these?
    
    We assume that there are no TLE's since Rosetta is not Earth orbiting.
    
    ESA data tell use that we might see Rosetta having mag. +8 so its worth
    while to try with big binoculars or telescope. When we know where to look.
    
    Our last wish is cooperative weather. Nobody can help us with that.
    
    Thanks for any suggestion or more specific reply.
