    Looks like this might be interesting to us down here..  Launch is due at 
    0116 UT on July 7 from Baikonur. (It will be daylight here at that time.
    
    Full details of the launch sequence are available in the launch kit from the 
    ILS launch site.
    
    However I do not have the expertise to translate them into the implications 
    for any significant events or visibility in this region, so any assistance 
    in that direction would be appreciated.
    
    Launch is conveniently on a Saturday afternoon  our time assuming no scrubs 
    etc, and will be broadcast so this should be helpful in following events.
