    Thanks Kevin !
    
    As usual, the TLE for the first coasting arc after MECO is wrong. Here is a
    corrected one :
    
    STS-122 MECO
    1 99122U 08-004A   8038.83050926  .01000000  82670-3  95600-4 0    13
    2 99122  51.6405 328.9421 0133408 349.3631  68.4120 16.48191148    18
    
    Unforunately, the shuttle and its external tank enter shadow just before
    making a pass over Europe 22 minutes after launch :-(
    
    Eastern Canada and northeastern US will see Atlantis at the beginning of its
    third orbit just before 6 pm EST.
    Use this elset for prediction purposes :
    STS-122 OMS-2
    1 99122U          08038.88199100  .00014500  00000-0  95600-4 0  9015
    2 99122  51.6409 328.6544 0012939 306.8386  53.1613 16.18147742    22
