    On Aug 3 starting at 22:57 UT, a boeing delta 4 rocket will carry the DSCS 3 B6 geo sat into
    Assuming the path of the rocket is the same as the last DSCS satellite lauch, I made up an approx
    orbit for the satellite on it's first ascending node orbit.
    I used this a a rough guide
    To get the following very very very approx orbit
    DSCS 3 B6       
    1 99999U 03000A   03216.19737269  .00000010  00000-0  00000-0 0 00011
    2 99999 025.5000 106.4910 7275492 178.9000 184.8049 02.29589923000014
    Now to wait for mission info, to correct for errors in my predicted obit.
    Got to have some fun, and see how badly I messed up :)
