    On Jan 25 a new satellite called sorce is scheduled to be lauched.
    Here's a website for it
    Anyways I thought I would have some fun and try and generate a predicted 
    orbit for it by looking at it's lauch ground track.
    Which is here
    Here's the very very very approx orbit, I get:)
    1 99999U          03025.84027778  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0 00001
    2 99999 040.0000 210.0000 0000000 000.0000 129.0000 14.75047655     0
    It appears grey roberts, will have an very approx 45 degree sunlit pass of 
    it, after it's launched.
    The outside is a shiny metal, a good light reflector:)  Looks like kapton to 
    me, in one picture.
