    I note that the Galileo IOV-1/Fregat-MT passed over Europe while the  
    Fregat was still burning.  I cannot remember a previous occasion when  
    a spacecraft was still in its initial boost phase when it reached  
    Europe.
    
    Is this geometry unique for the Galileo IOV/Fregat-MT missions,  so  
    that it will only happen once more?  Or does anyone want to guess if  
    this will be a regular feature of Soyuz launches out of the CSG?    
    Presumably there's a chance that some launches might be visible from  
    Europe during boost?   And where does the second stage land?  Mid- 
    Atlantic I assume,  but just checking.
    
    Thanks,
