    This Athena Launch from Alaska's Kodiak Island today (Saturday) might be
    SPECTACULAR in the western sky after sunset if launch occurs later in the
    launch window.  Launch is scheduled between 6pm PDT and 8pm.  If the launch
    occurs between 7:20 and 8pm PDT, it cound be very spectacular as the boost
    phase occurs as the rocket travels down the West Coast, reaching as high as
    15 degrees above the horizon.
    
    A chart showing the track as available at:

    Get out and take a look.  You never know what you're going to see.
