    Gil Moore, the Director of Project Starshine, has emailed to point out 
    that Starshine 2 satellite will be deployed from Space Shuttle Endeavor 
    on Sunday, December 16, at 1501 hours UMT.  The separation velocity will 
    be about one meter per second.
    Weather permitting, observers in Europe have good chances to view the 
    ISS and Shuttle that evening and he is keen to hear of sighting reports 
    of the two before the Shuttle does its de-orbit burn and while Starshine 
    2 is in the vicinity. In particular, are any SeeSat-ers in a position to 
    record the pass(es) on video or otherwise?
