The second launch period was moved earlier by two minutes.  Each launch
period is three minutes long.  Australian observers should be alert to
the possibility of seeing the circularization burn and initial separation
of the first two Globalstars.

The evasive and depletion burns at 9:48:57 and 9:56:27 UT respectively
are viewable from much of the USA...primarily the western portions and
potentially into central USA.

Info from the 10 Jul launch are included below with the ASSUMPTION that
the events for this launch are identical.  

The circularization burn occurs between 3712.5 and 3738.9 seconds after
launch. This may be visible to some Australian observers.

The upper satellites are deployed 4150 seconds after launch.  

Lower satellites are deployed 4400 seconds after launch.

The evasive burn which should be visible to SW and central USA 
observers (occurring over southern Baja CA), occurs between 6500
and 6505 seconds after launch.

The depletion burn occurs between 6950 and 6956.8 seconds after launch.
