  • Next message: "Raduga 21" now lists the Milstar launch as being
    scheduled for Sunday, April 6, 1351-1751 GMT (0951-1351 
    EDT).  Seven hours later, estimated time of the "comet",
    is 4:51-8:51 PM EDT/1:51-5:51 PST -- daylight over most 
    of North America except for the Eastern Time Zone if it 
    launches near the end of the window.  Sunset in Austin 
    that evening is 7:53 PM CDT (00:53 April 7 UTC), and 
    astronomical twilight ends at 9:15 PM (2:15 UTC).  Maybe
    someone in South America will observe it.
