    Next year, the LARES satellite will be launched.
    Should be a nice sat observing flashes from, looking at this image of it.
    Another image of it
    It will be placed into a orbit that is between 1400 to 1500 km high, with a inclination of 71 degrees.
    The ground track, the rocket is said will take.
