If launch is on time the first day, this is a reasonable search elset,
built from an early elset after the Kosmos 2341 launch on Apr.17:

Faisat-2v 970923 16:44 UTC                       1014 x 978
1 97025U 97002V   97266.68332521  .00000008  00000-0  10000-4 0   108
2 97025  82.9184 281.7361 0024279 273.4977  86.3400 13.71043547    04

It would initially be sunlit through the entire orbit.
Northern Finland might see the launch near sunset, I would have a
pass at 77 deg. on the first orbit, then 25 and 10 degrees.
